Good Samaritans

A Filipino chef, Nene Joan Toribio, believes the positive things you do for other people can often reverberate back to you. Through her Facebook page "J6’s Takoyaki at Ihaw-Ihaw," she tries to reach out to the Filipino frontliners, those who are currently out of job, have not been receiving salaries on time and practically those who need some cheering up at this time.

She offers free meals either for lunch or dinner, whatever is available. "I want to give back to the community in a way I know best - through my cooking! With the current heath and safety situation, I know that good, free meals can bring joy and happiness to people somehow,” she said.

Another Filipino expressed her willingness to help those who are not working and run out of food due to the pandemic. She urged everyone to don’t go to sleep with an empty stomach and do not hesitate to send a private message at Whatsapp 66221697 as they will be more than happy to provide free meals.

"Note: You must be living near Almeera Mansoura so we can just drop and go," she added.

She encouraged everyone to accept the challenge with hashtag #JoinTheCause, Humanity above everything!""
