Video of children helping friend with cerebral palsy goes viral
A video of two children, Yuan and Kari, sharing food with their friend, Hans, who had cerebral palsy went viral online on June 25.
The three children are students of teacher Christine Lopez, of the Special Education (SPED) class of Mouaque Resettlement Elementary School in Mabalacat City in Pampanga province.
Lopez told Inquirer.net that since the first day of class on June 3, she has been telling Yuan and Karl to help their classmate Hans when he has to eat and write.
However, that day, she was also surprised to see her students helping their classmate without her telling them.
“That day, they did it even if I have not told them to do so yet,” said Lopez. “That’s why I felt so happy,” she added.
Netizens were touched by the video and were all praises for the children. As of this writing, the video garnered 659,000 views, 16,000 reactions and shares online. (Editor: Tony Bergonia)
