A Local Hero in the Very Heart of Kalibo

This is a story of love… of being blessed to be a blessing… of gratitude… Truly, Aklan aside from its natural beauty can also boast of its heartwarming people. We at oneAklan, are truly blessed to be part of this wonderful Christmas story. After all, Christmas is about love, following the example of the One who first loved us, the reason why we can celebrate this season.

Meet a local hero in Kalibo, Mr. Flaredel Nabiong; our kind-hearted tricycle driver in town! One passenger took a ride with him and lost her phone last November 10, 2018. The owner tried to call her phone many times but to no avail. Surprisingly after 3 days, someone answered the call at the local police station in Kalibo and that’s because the phone has been turned-over by our hero, Mr. Nabiong.

As a sign of gratitude, the owner of the phone decided to give something simple yet special for him (who asked not to be named) this Christmas season. Thankfully, she saw oneAklan, downloaded the app, shopped for a “Christmas Basket”, and asked for us to deliver it straight to our hero’s house in Bakhaw Norte in Kalibo which surprised him so much who was at that time caught filled with grease and dirt all around his hands, fixing his tricycle that day!

The team in oneAklan also want to thank the owner of the lost mobile phone that we became part of this wonderful story that captured our hearts, and hopefully a lot of people who will see this, that the Spirit of Christmas is so evident to every Aklanon and to every Filipinos alike; restoring our faith not just to God but also to our fellow neighbors.
