Mom Scolds Son for Wasting His ‘Baon’, Finds Out Kid Saved His Money to Treat Blind Eye

A young boy who could only see in one eye had been repeatedly scolded by his mother for wasting his ‘baon’, but it turned out he was actually saving his money to pay for an eye checkup so he could fully see with both eyes!

The heartbreaking story was shared by the kid’s mother, Crisalyn Moreno who hails from Uson, Masbate.

According to Crisalyn, she would always make her son bring a bowl to school so he could buy soup with his ‘baon’ (allowance) of Php10. However, she noticed that the kid often comes back home with a clean soup bowl, making her assume that the boy had used his money to buy junk food or simply wasted it on something else.

The boy refused to talk back to his mom or explain where the money went; he just keeps silent each time she scolds him.

One day, Crisalyn has had enough. She didn’t want her son to continue wasting his ‘baon’ on useless things. So, she asked him where his money went – and she was rather surprised by his answer.

The boy finally admitted that he had actually kept the money. He took out the stash from its hiding place, telling his mother that he has money now. She was surprised about this, especially when he admitted that he didn’t buy soup in most days because he wanted to save money so he could have his eye checked.

Crisalyn shared that their son had asked them a long time ago about how he could find a good job to bring the family out of poverty and buy his parents a car if he could only see with one eye? The kid also expressed sadness that the other kids are laughing at him because one of his eyes is blind, but his parents just could not afford to pay for his eye checkup.

The boy was so determined to see again that he decided he wouldn’t use his ‘baon’ for food, so he could save enough money for the checkup! Our hearts really break for this young boy…
