I am good and helpful. I like playing volleyball and going deep sea fishing.

My wife’s name is Abigail. She is good, cheerful and hardworking. Sometimes she helps me go deep sea fishing. I have two sons. My oldest is a very sickly child and is always in the hospital. He has recovered lately but still needs to go for check ups with a neurologist who keep tabs of his situation. 

Before I worked at Dignity, I was a laborer/hauler in a trailer truck in Manila. We would pick up yellow corn from Isabela and Tuguegarao and deliver them to Batangas where they are used for feed.

At Dignity, I cook the coconut mash. My responsibility is to do the work assigned to me well.

I would like the eldest child to get proper treatment and get well. I would like to be able to send my children to school and give them a good life. 

A challenge I went through was when I was watching over my eldest son in a hospital. He suddenly had the chills and since I was watching him alone I did not know what to do. I prayed and asked God to save Ian. I pleaded with the nurse not to leave us. She stayed with us until my son could breathe properly. It turned out that he had pneumonia. I thank God that He did not forsake us. 

I am proud that when my wife and I got married, we did not have to ask for financial help from my parents. My wife and children make me happy.

Even if work at Dignity part-time, it still helps us, somehow, pay for expenses at home. So, thank you, Dignity!
