At a Filipino Soup Kitchen
He wants to remain anonymous, so on his Filipino Facebook pages he’s Mang Urot and on his English pages, James Braddock. I posted his story in March at http://caroldussere.com/2012/03/29/a-personal-crusade. His crusade has grown. Contact email: col_...@yahoo.com.
On June 23, I followed him and his friend around while they brought supplies at the Divisoria Market, cooked, set up the soup kitchen in a bank parking lot, fed the hungry and cleaned up afterwards. For this event more of his family and friends were involved. About sixty people waited two hours for a hot meal, most of them children. These are people who live on a dollar a day or less. They also got toothbrushes, toys and flip-flops. We’ll let the pictures tell the story. (Click on any picture for a better look.)
