First of all let me ask you what is compassion all about?

According to merriam webster dictionary it is a feeling  of  wanting  to help someone who is sick, hungry, in trouble, etc.

Upon learning what compassion mean is it has to start in yourself. Being compassionate to yourself is the first step before you can be compassionate towards others. With some realizations of my life I think my compassion towards others is more stronger than my compassion for myself.

Last wednesday my cousin together with his mom visited us and they stayed here two nights. They just went home yesterday afternoon. Everytime they come here , his mother call me to carry him when they're about to cross the rice field. The reason for that is my cousin is too heavy for my aunt to carry when they walk in the farm embankment.

A little trivia this is what a farm embankment is. The little portion of land that devides the ricefield.

His mom called me last wednesday to carry him and as I carry him I noticed his feet, it's skin is peeling off , dry and have cracks.I feel sorry for him , my heart hurts when I see his feet like that.

For the information of everybody my cousin is 3 years old and a 3 years old can walk on his own right. I know that you are wondering why his mom carry him all the way and I carry him it is because my cousin have this what we called Club foot which hinders him to walk as a normal person. So what is a club foot ,

"Clubfoot is a deformity in which an infant's foot is turned inward, often so severely that the bottom of the foot faces sideways or even upward. Approximately one infant in every 1,000 live births will have clubfoot, making it one of the more common congenital (present at birth) foot deformities." this is according to https://orthoinfo.aaos.org/en/diseases--conditions/clubfoot/

He can walk but most of the times he crawls and it saddened me. Deeply in my heart I want to help him. I want to take him to a doctor to see his condition. As I search the internet for medical solutions in this kind of condition is that it can be operated and turn it to normal but it cost a lot.

His mother is a housewife and sometimes she do laundry for others and they pay her around 150 to 300 pesos or aproximately 3 to 7 dollars. His father is a construction worker who works very hard in order to provide the needs of his family.

His sister is here living with us and he's very happy to see her and able to play with her. He's so energetic and he's doing his best to act as a normal person with a normal feet. We play together, I carry him on my back and run. He loves it very much. He always laugh with us . Sometimes when he talks about something , he's talking like an old man which making us laugh. For a 3 years old , he's very talkative. He knows a lot for a 3 years old. He's smart.

Sometimes he say's to me " kuya nagsakit tuy sakak" " my feet hurts" and hearing that from him makes me wanna cry. I can't bear to see him like that and my burning compassion saying to me that I need to do something.

Sometimes I buy milk for him and also foods, fruits and clothes. That's the best I can do for him now. When they're short on budget , her mother calls me and borrow money. I lend some not that much and I'm telling her to not pay me back , just get it and spend it for her son and their needs. All the money that I lend to her comes from Noise.cash and from my savings.

Since I found readcash, he's also one of my inspiration to do my best here. Once I gather enought funds, I will bring him to a doctor and pay for his operation. I just don't want his smile to fade away and belittle his self when he grows up. This world is a dangerous place for the likes of him. They may bully him when he went to school and I don't want him to exeperience any of that.

I'm planning to fund his future operation. It may took long but knowing that there's a possibility to turn his feet to normal is a big hope for me and especially for him. It maybe expensive but what most important is to help him to experience normal life without being judge by the selfish tongues of monsters living in this planet.

His birthday is this coming August and I'm planning to buy him a present with my earnings here.Hopefully bch prize will not be bloody when the time comes.

His name is Rodel Ortiguero Contaoi. 3 years of age. I took this last wednesday.

He loves to take a picture using my phone and he loves also to play plant vs. zombie.😁That's me by the way.😅

You have a golden heart for others. The burning compassion within you will help you grow more as a person. If only all people in the world value compassion more than anything else, we would've been living in tranquility and harmony.

I will have him in my prayers and hopefully, he will be healed in God's grace.
