Lolo Primo works and lives in San Mateo, Rizal. Despite his age, he works tirelessly 6 days a week as a street sweeper. He doesn’t just sweep the streets though, he also jumps in the little canals and digs through the debris and mud to ensure that it doesn’t get clogged up and cause floods – which is a normal occurrence in the area when it rains.

No matter the weather, he does his job, every day with no complaints. Young men would attest that this is a back breaking job, let alone have an old man like Lolo Primo do this every day! My nephew, Uno, sees him every day and greets him. So, on my birthday, he and his mom packed a goodie bag for him! Just as a way to say thank you to him for all the things that he does.

Thank you for what you do, Lolo Primo. Thank you for what you did, Uno!
