A video of an adorable 5-year-old girl, Jenny, from the Philippines doing her utmost to help her blind father, Nelson Pepe has gone viral.
The three-minute video showing Jenny’s ritual to help her dad went viral after it was posted on Facebook. The dire plight of the poor father and daughter has struck a sympathetic chord amongst millions of social media users worldwide.
With assistance from ABS-CBN Foundation and Rated K, Pepe was brought to Manila, where his eye-condition was diagnosed as retinal detachment and retinitis pigmentosa, a rare genetic eye disease in which the retina of the eye is damaged.
In addition, the foundation intended to help relocate Pepe, his wife, and their three children to a safer environment, and to provide him with livelihood training.
Other than that, Pepe was given Php10,000 (US$189.95) capital to set up a sari-sari store (a neighborhood sundry store).
