A true friend is like a four-leaf clover – hard to find but lucky to have. With this in mind, we could always count on our true friends whenever unforeseen situations happen. Case in point – you might want to read about the inspiring story of a man named Alex Boboyo, who became the guardian of orphaned children.
In the recent episode of “Wish Ko Lang”, the kind-hearted man recounted how he ended up being the guardian of six, motherless children. In the statement below, it’s revealed that the mother of the children was Alex Boboyo’s best friend.
“Bes, huwag mo pababayaan ang mga anak ko kahit anuman ang mangyari sa akin. Kahit isa sa kanila, huwag mong iwawalay sayo. Maiwawalay lang sila sa iyo kung mayroon na silang mga asawa at trabaho.”

His normal day usually starts by attending to the needs of his new-found children. Then, Alex would immediately begin with the house chores. After doing all the tasks in his checklist, this amazing man still finds the time to visit his own father and sibling who are both frail.
“Hindi ko naman iniisip iyong sarili ko. Basta ang mahalaga makatulong lang ako.”

Although it hard, Alex Boboyo still tries to help his family come high or hell water. The only source of income for this family is when Alex accepts laundry from other people. Jayjay Cerdinio, the eldest of the six children, chose to give up his education in order to support his younger siblings. He’s been living in Manila for over a year now.
“Mahirap po talaga ang buyhay dito sa Maynila. Tinitiis ko nalang po para sa mga kapatid ko.“
Despite the difficult road ahead, Alex is still willing to take on the role of guardian for these kids. We’re glad that the “Wisk Ko Lang” team recognized his efforts and willingly helped Alex and his family find their dream.
