Meet the mysterious good samaritan of Roxas Blvd who feeds poor people

Good samaritan who refuses to be named gives free porridge to the people of Roxas Boulevard every weekend.

MANILA, Philippines -- It's uplifting to find out that even in a country plagued with problems, there are still people who never forget to lend a helping hand.

The story behind this photo from Facebook caught the attention of thousands of netizens. At first glance, it seems like a simple 'lugaw' cart doing its business, but the caption revealed that this is nothing like any ordinary lugaw cart.

According to the uploader Carlos Celdran, while walking across Roxas Blvd last night, he encountered people lining up on a lugaw cart. What caught his interest is the simple signage in the cart indicating that the porridge is free.

"Street children were lining up. So were vagrants, security guards, tricycle drivers, students, taong grasa, you name it." Celdran stated in his Facebook post.

Apparently, every weekend, a good samaritan funds for this deed. The man refuses to be named and only identified himself under the pseudonym 'Leon'.

Even the lady who was giving out the free porridge behind the cart claimed that she doesn't know the benefactor behind this humble scheme.

On the other hand, the cyberworld were quick to reach out their support and salute to Leon's sincerity in helping others. Some also compared this scenario to the current state of our country's politicians.

A netizen even commented:
"Bless his/her soul. Obviously not a politician otherwise his face is all over the cart and there will be media broadcasting it."

Other people pointed out that Leon shuns the spotlight, whereas politicians and elite Filipino fundraisers make so much publicity in helping people that causes their deed to be put in question.
