Malabon Mayor Jeannie Sandoval lauds honest residents
Malabon Mayor Jeannie Sandoval personally met and thanked two young residents of her city who returned a bag they found that contained P23,000 in cash.
Sandoval visited JL and Chloe from Potrero to learn all about their good deed.
They told her that they were on their way to eat when they saw the owner drop the bag. They tried to call the owner’s attention but she did not hear them.
The barangay captain in their area helped them find the owner to return the bag and its contents.
The two youths said they did not think of keeping the bag as it did not belong to them.
Sandoval said their action restored her faith in humanity.
“Tunay na nakakaproud ang mga batang ito. Napalaki kayo ng inyong mga magulang nang maayos at may malasakit sa kapwa. Nawa’y tularan kayo ng ating mga kababayan sa kagandahang loob na inyong ipinakita,” she said.
She also said people should emulate these two young residents.
She gave them a reward for their honesty.
