Rommel is an 11-year-old boy from the Philippines who was abandoned by his parents right after they separated. He’s not very close with any of his 8 siblings, and he has to earn money by begging in the streets of his hometown. His 20-year-old sister works in a factory and pretended to take charge of him, but since he makes more money begging than she does at the factory, it was of no use.
But there was one light that would give Rommel’s life all the hope that he needed. Rommel eventually met Badgi in the streets, a small puppy who quickly became the boy’s best friend in the world. Since they’re both astray, because they were rejected from society, their bond has a strength that is incomparable to any other kind of friendship.
They help each other out in the best way that they can, but life has not been easy for Rommel. Since education in the Philippines isn’t free, Rommel has very little hope to eventually make it on his own. But thanks to this touching video, his case got a lot of publicity, and now Rommel is already enrolled in school, and they’re on their way to a more welcoming and healthy home.
