Most of us could probably agree that life is sometimes unfair. It’s like people who are blessed are blessed more and more while people who suffer, suffer even more. With
this particular girl, her struggle is not just poverty. This 6-year-old child is using ‘bomba ng bisikleta’ to ease her sick father.
Eumer Yanga, a journalist working at the GMA Network, posted a video that shows the plight of this 6 years old child using a ‘bomba ng bisikleta’ or manual air pump to help her father take his medicine who has emphysema. Emphysema is a lung condition which causes the shortness of his breath.
According to WebMD, emphysema happens when the linings of the tiny air sacks of the lungs become damaged beyond repair and it gets worst over time.
Yanga captioned the post:
“Bilang ako mismo’y may hika, ramdam ko ang kalbaryo sa pang-araw-araw ni Tatay. Ang kagustuhang makahinga nang maayos ay nakasalalay sa bawat pagbomba ng kaniyang mga
anak na sa murang edad ay mulat na sa kalagayan ng kanilang pamilya.”
[Translation: As an individual who has asthma, I feel the daily hardships of the father. His eagerness to breath properly depends on the bicycle air pump used by his daughter who’s very much aware of the family’s current condition.]
The plight of this father and daughter was featured in one of Frontrow’s episode entitled “Nebulizer”. Thankfully, their story reached good-natured individuals that are willing to help. The day after his post went viral, a company gave two portable nebulizers and a compressor nebulizer for the father.
“UPDATE: Isang kumpanya ang nagbigay ng dalawang portable nebulizer at isang compressor nebulizer para kay Tatay. Lubos po kaming nagpapasalamat sa lahat ng mga nais tumulong! Mabuhay po kayo! 🙌🏻”
