Filipinos Honored for their Courage

Cathy Garcia wrote about three Filipino men who were recognized for their bravery.

Here’s an excerpt:

Three Filipino workers were recently honored by the Philippine Embassy in Seoul for helping rescue a young Korean high school student from being raped, and apprehending the suspect.

Jomar Marco, Felix Jumarang and Jayson Ibarra received medals from Philippine Vice-President Jejomar Binay and Ambassador Luis Cruz in a ceremony at the embassy last week.

The three men were part of a group of Filipinos who work at a factory in Namyangju, Gyeonggi Province. On the evening of May 17, they heard a woman screaming outside the factory gates. When they went outside, they found a woman with a female high school student, in tears and with blood on her cheeks and bruises.

    Wow! They are heroes! They helped a girl escape a would-have-been traumatic experience and perhaps, murder. Matulungin talaga ang mga Pilipino. It’s good to know that such good-hearted people still exists on earth.
