MANILA, Philippines — Small acts of kindness go a long way in this pandemic.

Toti Fornilos, a barber from Daet, Camarines Norte, offered free haircut to 15 frontliners of the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office to express his gratitude for their sacrifice, selflessness and hard work.

Fornilos’ good deed is among those recorded by the task force against the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) since Luzon was placed on enhanced community quarantine.

The task force led by Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process Carlito Galvez Jr. lauded owners of micro, small and medium-sized business enterprises who are helping affected communities and frontliners.

In Sultan Kudarat, businessman Patrick Ibrahim Mama, a former Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) fighter, donated his calamansi harvest to residents of Isulan and nearby areas to ”help boost their immune system.”

Mama was among the decommissioned MILF guerrillas under the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro.

In a video message posted on Facebook, Mama said he is willing to share his blessings to those in need.

“I don’t have money to share with my neighbors. What I can share... are these sacks of calamansi I harvested from my 10-hectare land,” he said.
