Siblings Have To Work Alongside Parents And Repair Shoes In Order To Survive And Go To School
In some parts of the Philippines, life is far from being comfortable. The adults in the family have to toil every day to get by, and sometimes these barely bearable responsibilities trickle down to the younger ones. So was the case for Micko and Manuelita Borbon.
The two kids have to run over to their parent's shoe repair workshop every day after school to help their parents and support their family. Thanks to a Facebook user Jernnanie Jethro Juaton's post, the world's attention has been brought to their plight. According to Juaton's post, Micko, 12, and Manuelita, 13, are the first two kids of low earning couple Emmanuel and Mary Ann.
