Alam ko naman po noon na bawal lumabas, eh. Pinipilit ko lang po para sa pamilya ko. Para may pagkain po kami. Para mabuhay lang po ‘yung pamilya naming,” Manny said.

Kahit may virus, magtitinda pa rin ako para makakain ang pamilya ko. Kapag may ipon po ako ibinibigay ko po pambili po ng gamot. Kahit wala pong matira sa akin. Makita ko lang po na masaya ‘yung magulang ko, masaya na rin ako.
