Two Honest Filipina Street Cleaners Recognized

street cleaners
Honest people are still abounding around us. They're doing good, even though no one is watching them.

Recently two Filipina, Marilyn Campos, 39, a single mother, and Analyn Aquino, 26, were rewarded by city Mayor Lani Cayetano of Taguig for their honesty. Each received a cash gifts of P10,000.

While doing their day-to-day chores as a street cleaners, they accidentally found the P95,000 cash in a trash can inside the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) compound in Bicutan, Taguig City, last week, the news said.

As a poor earner, they should have kept the money for themselves. But they didn't have a second thought. Instead, they returned the money to its rightful owner, Engineer Dante Pedrizo, a resident of Samaba K9, Lower Bicutan, last July 12.

For such unconditional disposition of honesty of the two women, Mayor Cayetano was impressed for they "never crossed their minds to keep the money for themselves." Therefore in return, their honesty should be reciprocated. And besides their acts give credence and momentum to Mayor Cayetano's anti-corruption campaign and moral recovery program. As an additional incentive, the mayor gave them new jobs and an increase  for their take-home pay.

Mayor Cayetano is right when she said: "Do good in every opportunity when no one is looking".  And this should lead us in our way of life. We could be honest in any ways, even others are not.

  1. i salute them because it's very rare that you will see and hear this kind of news. i hope that there will be more people like them. and i agree that we should do good even when no one is around.

  2. congrats to the two street cleaners and Mayor Cayetano was right Do right to others even thou there is no one is looking. just be honest to everyone and do not after the popularity or rewards in return.

  3. In it, I congratulate them too for their honesty and integrity. Seldom one can see people like them in our society and may their tribe increases!

  4. Kudos to these women! We need more people like them. Reading something like this makes me feel really proud and still hopeful for our society.

  5. They should be rewarded with what they did.I still believe rthat there are still lots of honest people in our country despite their poor way of life.

  6. I salute you to our women! Matapat - likas sa mga Filipino!

  7. Wow! Very honest indeed. I hope their good karma returns to them tenfold.

  8. When I was still working in Makati I got a commendation too from the President of the company for returning huge amount of "ot payments" to my payroll that I never rendered. For me, noone will know yes that's true but God is watching.. and I cannot have that in my conscience. All over the world we always hear stories like this, of Filipinos' honesty. I am proud to be pinoy! ;-)

  11. this is heart-warming and rewarding to those who still believe in goodness. I always remind myself that there are STILL good people in this world despite of rampant cruelty, greed and selfishness these days. I admire them for their honesty. They already have that 95,000 inside their bank accounts in heaven.

  12. This is truly noteworthy! We should definitely recognize people who do good like these ladies here. Even despite the bad news that we hear everyday, I still believe in the innate goodness of the human being. I'm glad to see that my belief is not unfounded. :)

  13. two thumbs up for these 2 pinays! it's really great to hear positive stories from Phils and not just those highly publicized corruption cases...

  14. Well done! Honesty is the best attitude to practice. Good example to other fellowmen.

  15. I hope people like them gets a lot of recognition :)

  16. Cool! Congrats to the cleaners! They deserved to be recognized! Saludo po kami sa inyong pagiging honest! Isa kayong karangalan sa bansang Pilipinas! Mabuhay!


  17. this is really an inspiring story and something to be proud about. meron pa talagang mga honest na tao... sana magsilbing halimbawa sila sa mga taong corrupt o nag-aaral pang maging corrupt. everyone should know about them. thanks po for sharing... Yahweh bless.

  18. Such a decent act!

    I wonder though how such large amount of cash made its way to the trash bin.
