The Bayanihan spirit of the Filipinos is alive again as some citizens volunteered to clean the cars covered with ashes because of the Taal volcano.
Ashfall is extremely dangerous, especially to the car owners because the ashes could block their vehicle’s windshield that would cause an unfortunate incident.
Fortunately, several citizens offered free car wash to vehicle owners so they could drive safely to their destination.
Netizen Roger Villa from Tanauan City, Batangas was spotted cleaning cars passing by.
“Flex ko lang ang asawa ko na naglilinis ng mga dumadaang sasakyan,” said Marj Jorie.
Another netizen, Aren Ambaijia from Silang, Cavite helped the vehicle owners to clean their car covered with ashes from Taal volcano.
“Tulong muna tayo guys, from Tagaytay po karamihan sa mga sasakyan,” Aren Ambojia said.
Netizen Chris Onate also shared his story on how a man helped them to clean their windshield.
“This man stood out on the street with his pressure washer and washed down people’s windshields as visibility was horrible,” Chris Onate said, “All of us frantically driving away from Taal trying to get our families to safety, salute you,”
“Good Samaritans amidst this catastrophe. Sir, I don’t know who you are but thank you. Not all heroes wear capes,”
All the said posts have gone viral on Facebook and received praise from the netizens.
It also inspired other netizens to do the same and help other people in different ways.
