Find out why this unforgettable encounter with a street child in Quiapo church went viral.

A University of Manila student named Lyra Royo shared her unforgettable encounter with a street child near Quiapo last July 2.

When Royo posted her experience, she only wanted to express her pride with the street child. It didn't cross her mind that her post will become viral after being noticed by a total of 14k people.

The heavy rain accidentally stopped Royo from attending her first on the job training. Due to the traffic jam and flooded streets, she decided to stop by the Quiapo church.



Call it fate or accident, but this is where she met a street child. Upon meeting, she offered the boy cupcakes. After exchanging a few words, they decided to eat together. As Royo called it, they had a 'heart-to-heart talk' as they ate.

If you've been to Quiapo church, you will surely be familiar of the kids selling Nazarene necklaces to the patrons. But this street child admitted the reason on why he doesn't sell necklaces:

"Ayoko po, P2.50 lang po kasi ang benta dun pero binebenta nila ng P20. Ang sabi po sa Bible, wag mong tubuan ng malaki ang kapwa mo."

He also revealed how some streetchildren uses the profit from selling overpriced necklace by spending it on vices. Royo asked the boy if he has any vices, to which he replied:

"Wala po, may pangarap po ako sa buhay."

However, there's always two sides of a coin. Though many people are inspired with Royo's story, some of them criticized her for 'broadcasting' her deed in Facebook. A netizen even commented:

"Pwede naman tumulong sa kapwa maganda yun utos ng Diyos yun. Pero yung ipost mo pa ginawa mong tulong, hinde maganda pakitang tao na  yun."



A handful of people also claimed that she was just using the story to gain popularity or to be praised for her deed but at the end of the day, what matters most is that the powerful message of her post was spread.
