Paranaque councilor Joan Villafuerte took time off from her busy schedule to visit a 17-year-old girl who wanted to see her.

In a Facebook post, Villafuerte said Mika has been diagnosed with TB meningitis since she was seven years old. She is bedridden.

“Ang request niya sa amin…diapers at pagkain. Kaya makalipas ng 2 araw, binalikan namin siya para ibigay ang kaniyang munting request,” Villafuerte said.

The councilor believes it’s not an accident that she and her team went to the community where Mika lived because circumstances allowed them to meet.

“Sabi niya sa amin, ‘Ate Joan, sana gumaling ako. Gusto ko na ulit mag-school.’ Mukhang may magandang dahilan kung bakit babalik-balikan namin ang Sitio Duhat.” Villafuerte said.
