A Dubai-based Filipina has bartered her pre-loved items online to exchange with grocery items to be supplied to an old man in Satwa who is also displaced due to Covid-19.
Aina Ciara Mella posted her plead on Amicable Barter Community in Dubai (ABCD) to help the old Filipino man.
Mella will celebrate her birthday tomorrow and doesn’t have enough money to help her kabayan so she decided to barter her pre-loved items.
She barters sun glasses, chain bag, and a pair of slippers with Jasmine Rice, dozens of eggs, noodles, bread, among other food that are essential in day to day life.
“Lahat po ito mapupunta kay tatay. Wala rin po kasi akong sapat na money sa ngayon kaya naisip ko ibarter na lang po itong mga gamit ko para makapagbigay tulong po kay tatay. Yun na po ang pinakamagandang birthday gift bukas pag naabutan ko sya ng tulong,” Mella writes.
Her post was flooded with nearly 300 comments trying to reach her out and the old man.
