What awaits you by the time you reach 60? To some, they may live a cozy and comfortable life, but there are others who spend their remaining years on the streets abandoned by their own children.
Ted Failon hears the story of one of them this Saturday (Dec 10) in “Failon Ngayon” as he probes the struggles of being a senior citizen in Philippine society. He meets Nhila who worked so hard to give her son a good life, but was abandoned on the street together with her grandchild. His only son didn’t only leave her with his first born child but lives comfortably with his second wife now.
What should the government do to aid senior citizens in the country? How can agencies such as SSS, GSIS, and OSA help them in their plight?
“Failon Ngayon” currently celebrates its second year of giving the public analyses on current social issues and also providing timely solutions and prompt and proper action to featured concerns.
Don’t miss “Failon Ngayon” this Saturday (Nov 26), 5 PM, after “Ako ang Simula” on ABS-CBN.
