Homeless Korean in the Philippines update
I saw the post during the Chuseok holidays two weeks ago. It went viral on Facebook, where it was first posted by a Filipino. It was of an allegedly homeless Korean living in the Philippines ~
The office of Rep. Jasmine Lee (the Philippine-born parliamentarian in South Korea) was informed of the viral post. Her office coordinated with the Korean Embassy to get help to “Joseph”. His family has been contacted and the Korean community in the Philippines is helping him, too.
Joseph worked in the Philippines as a call center agent. However, some unfortunate event happened that caused him to lose his job. Hopefully, he would be reunited with his family soon so he could get back on his feet. He is still young and with the right attitude he could get a second chance at life ~ good luck!
To all those who cared enough to share his story ~ please be satisfied that he is being taken care of now. 🙂
