Mabait na Landlady, Nanglibre ng Isang Buwang Upa Para sa Kanyang Tenant



Due to the enhanced community quarantine in Metro Manila, thousands of employees are also struggling to make ends meet. Most of them follow a 'no work, no pay' policy, which means that they are effectively jobless throughout the quarantine period. For people living from paycheck to paycheck, this means starvation.

As a consideration, some government offices like PAG-IBIG and SSS imposed a moratorium that temporarily suspends loans and other payments for three months. President Rodrigo Duterte also encouraged landlords in Metro Manila to provide moratorium for their tenants.


However, this remains a suggestion and no official order has been sent out yet. In spite of this, many kindhearted landlords willingly gave consideration for their tenants. Some of them even offered to give 1 month of free rent for their tenants.

On social media, a netizen expressed her overwhelming gratitude to her generous landlady. Their rent is due on April 15, but their landlady messaged her and urged her to keep the money. Instead, she can use the rent money to buy supplies for her family instead.



"Hi Melinda, sa April 15, wag ka magbayad ng upa. Bali ang next payment mo sa May 15 na, i-free ko na yung 1 month rent dahil sa crisi ngayon. Ingat na lang kayo. Salamat," this is the landlord's message, which was shared on Facebook.

However, we can't expect all landlords to do the same. This is especially difficult for those landlords who rely on the rent payment as their only source of income. During this crisis, we all must do our share to help not only ourselves but for others in need as well.
