Businessman and Philanthropist Francis Leo Marcos, through a Facebook live video, urged his fellow Filipinos again to help the people who were most affected by the crisis instead of blaming the government for what’s happening.
While distributing sacks of rice around Quezon City, Marcos talked to the cops deployed in Camp Crame and also vowed to send them help.
Marcos said that his mother who was inspired by former President Ferdinand Marcos taught him how to be generous to the needy.
“Marami po ang nagtatanong bakit ko po ito ginagawa, alam niyo po ay nag iisa lamang akong anak, my mom is an Igorot and an Ilocano, and my mother inspired by the great doing of the former President Marcos, so she taught me how to be kind, na hindi lang ako yung nabubuhay para sa sarili ko lang,” Marcos who claimed that he’s the only child in the family stated.
According to him, he would not stop helping people even if he already loses all the stored rice he bought.
He then encouraged his rich followers to help the others and “help the government” amid the crisis.
“The government could not fight it alone, hindi kaya ng government natin yan,” he said.
“There is no income, our government is immobilized, so higit po sa lahat kaysa sa sisihin natin ang gobyerno, eh tayo po ay tumulong para po malampasan natin ang ating pinagdadaanang crisis,” he added.
Marcos has gone viral on social media after he encouraged rich people living in a super-executive village in Quezon City to go outside of their mansions to help the needy.
He claimed that he doesn’t care even if his wealth got depleted as long as he’s helping other people.
