Ruru Madrid visited his childhood neighborhood in Marikina to personally provide aid to his former neighbors who were badly hit by Typhoon Ulysses.

The Kapuso actor noted that his former home along Kabayani Road in Malanday, Marikina City, has taken the brunt of some of the worst typhoons including 2009’s Typhoon Ondoy over the years.

“Dito rin po ako lumaki, natuto at tumatag pag dating sa buhay. Sapagkat nasanay na kami sa kahirapan na maaari naming sapitin sa tuwing nagkakaroon ng mga sakuna,” Madrid said on Instagram yesterday, Nov. 18.

(This is also where I grew up, learned and became strong in life. It is because we have gotten used to the hardship of life whenever a calamity strikes.)

“Ilan sa mga ito ay ang Ondoy, [Habagat] at ang huli ay Bagyong Ulysses kung saan marami ay nawalan ng tirahan, kinabubuhay at ang pinaka nakakalungkot sa lahat ay nabawian pa ng buhay,” Madrid stressed.

(Some of those are Ondoy, the Southwest Monsoon and just recently, Typhoon Ulysses, where many people lost their homes, livelihoods and, most unfortunately, their lives.)

The actor’s post came with a photo of him with residents of the said neighborhood on the streets, which are still visibly left muddied due to the recent floods.

“Ngunit magkaganun pa man alam namin na kahit na gaano pa kahirap ang aming sapitin kailangan pa rin namin bumangon at natutunan naming lahat na kung kami ay magtutulungan ay makakaraos kami sa lahat ng kahirapan sa buhay,” Madrid stressed.

“Lahat tayo ay sama-samang babangon sa pinsala na ating naranasan! Manalig lamang tayo sa panginoon, na ito ay isang matinding pagsubok lamang para sa ating lahat at malalampasan din po natin ito,” Madrid added.

(All of us will rise together from the calamities we have experienced! We should just hold on to our faith in God, that this is just a challenge for us all and we will all get through it.)

Madrid is one of the many celebrities who have been extending a helping hand to victims of the recent typhoons, namely Rolly and Ulysses, which hit parts of Luzon earlier this month.  /ra
