A Grade 3 student was kind enough to return the money he found to a teacher and cancer survivor.
According to Kent Abrigana’s “24 Oras” report Tuesday, Ashnor Cadato saw the envelope with money when he went to Tagum City to pay electric bills. He immediately informed his mom.
“Mabilis niya itinawag sa akin na ‘Ma, may nakita akong pera’ kaya kaagad kong kinuhanan ng litrato bago kami umuwi at ipinost sa social media,” said Alseah.
The money’s owner, 55-year-old Oliva Pelias, couldn’t help but be filled with gratitude as the money was intended for medicine. It was from DepEd Region 11’s Service Incentive Recognition for teachers.
To thank Ashnor, she personally went to the Cadato family’s home. She even gave them a small gift.
“Sa mag-ina, mula sa puso kong ibibigay ang kaunting regalo para sa inyo. Alam kong diringgin ito ni Allah. Si Allah na ang bahala sa inyo, sa inyong pagka-totoong tao,” Pelias said.
Ashnor was also given recognition by DepEd, who hopes the child will be an inspiration to others.—Franchesca Viernes/LDF, GMA Integrated News
