For returning a lost purse containing $220 and P700, the driver of Metropolitan Manila Development (MMDA) Chairman Danilo Lim will be awarded with a certificate of recognition for showing honesty.

MMDA employee Rex Ronal Romero, 34,  said he saw the purse along the EDSA-Ayala Tunnel while driving on Monday, Oct. 8.


“I check the contents of the purse and found $220, P700, identification cards, ATM cards, etc.,”  a statement by the MMDA quoted Romero on Friday.

Romero, who has been with the MMDA for the past 10 years and has been Lim’s driver for a year now, said he immediately contacted the owner through emergency contact numbers in one of the IDs inside the purse upon reaching home.


The owner was able to redeem his purse at the MMDA’s administration department on Wednesday, Oct. 10, and expressed his gratitude to Romero. He also met Lim to personally commend Romero.

“Romero’s good deed is a clear manifestation of the high sense of dedication to public service worthy of emulation,” said Lim. /muf
