Facebook user Shair Joy Mendelez shared photos of hardworking parents selling corn and rambutan in their push cart while inside you can see their children sleeping inside.
The photo of the children went viral on social media, gaining mixed reactions from netizens.
Shair Joy was surprised when she buys fruits from a woman and noticed two kids sleeping inside the push cart (kaiton) of the woman.
The woman sells fruits while her husband sells roasted corn in the Divisoria area in Manila just to support their family. Because of poverty the couple bring their kids while they were working.
To help the couple, Shair Joy bought 5 pices of grilled corn and 3 kg of rambutans. Even though many netizens have praised the couple who work hard for their children, some of the netizens have criticized them for exposing their children in hot weather, and fumes from multiple vehicles passing through.
However, many social media users have praised Mendelez for helping the family survive for the day.
