Let’s face the fact that the poverty in the Philippines has been getting worse to the point that more and more children are being forced to work in the streets. These children aren’t only deprived of their rights to study but also from their rights to enjoy their childhood. Just like this cute little vegetable vendor who has captured the attention of Sharon Cuneta.
Just recently, a photo of a little boy sleeping while trying to sell his vegetables, went extremely viral online, leaving everyone in awe.
The viral photo instantly captured the attention of Sharon Cuneta. On her Instagram account, she posted the photo of the little boy along with the caption that reads: “@fannytfserrano TF, nasaan ang batang ito?!!! Gusto ko bilhin lahat ng tinda niya araw-araw tapos iba magtitinda dahil mag-aaral na siya!!! Waaahhh!!!”
Somehow, Sharon Cuneta wanted to find the little boy in hopes of meeting him and sending him to school.
However, another Instagram user who goes by the handle @menmelyn told Sharon Cuneta that the little boy is from Indonesia and that he’s been selling Indonesian vegetables.
The netizen wrote: “@reallysharoncuneta hello sharon, this kid is from Indonesia. And he is selling Indonesian vegetables”
Although the little boy isn’t a Filipino, people still admired the way Sharon Cuneta tried to search for the little boy just so she could give him the rights to study.
