This netizen sought medical help for his dystonia, asking a non-government organization founder and social media warrior to raise funds for him and to directly ask President Rodrigo Duterte for help.

But when The Little Swallow Founder MJ Quiambao Reyes failed to pool in the necessary resources, the unidentified male netizen got angry.



“Sana hindi sapitin ng iyong pamilya ang malubhang sakit,” the unidentified netizen said to Reyes.
“DDS (Diehard Duterte Supporters) pa naman tau pero ikaw walang puso,” he added.


Reyes expressed her hurt and disappointment over the events saying that she tries her best to ask for help and raise whatever funds she could to help people like the netizen, however, when the resources cannot be pulled in, Reyes herself becomes frustrated.


“It is frustrating and oftentimes depressing that, at the end of the day, I can only do so much... Sorry but I only have limited capacity, influence, and resources,” Reyes lamented.


But despite her limits, Reyes asserts that she does not deserve to be spoken to or treated in the way the unnamed male netizen did.


“Sa mga pagkakataong wala po akong magawa at hindi ako makatulong sa inyo, huwag nyo naman po sanang ibunton at ipasa sa akin ang galit nyo sa sarili, sa mundo, at sa gobyerno,” Reyes wrote.


She explained that she receives at least 10 messages a day asking for help, in one way or another, and some of them have conditions worse than the unnamed male citizen who suffers from dystonia.


Dystonia is a medical condition where one’s muscles contracts uncontrollably.

Reyes’ NGO, The Little Swallow, is supported by hard work just so she can help some indigent children, among them being able to provide them secondhand strollers.


Despite the unnamed netizen’s insults against her, Reyes urged him to vent out his anger towards corruption and abuse which causes poor medical services.


The NGO founder further urged to support the President and other people who genuinely lobby against corruption.

He pm'd me months ago and said he is suffering from dystonia. He wanted me 1) to raise funds for him and 2) to directly ask PRRD for help.

I politely suggested that he may want to proceed to PGH as that is where PRRD alloted Php100M for patients like him. 

Sabi nya, nagpunta na raw sya sa PGH at kumontak sa iba pang mga bloggers pero di raw po sya pinansin. I tried contacting other agencies who can help him, albeit unsuccessful.


He was very unhappy when I failed to do an online fund-raising for him. His frustrations and anger were later directed to me.

Pasensya na po talaga, pagdating sa bagay na yan ay daig ko pa po ang "makahiya". Hindi ko po talento ang mag fund-raising at manghingi ng pera. The most I can ask from people are used strollers for indigent sick children.

The reality is: I am overwhelmed by a lot of messages everyday. Mahina na ang sampu (10) kada araw. Karamihan po dyan ay may mga sakit na mas malubha pa sa dystonia at nangangailangan rin po ng tulong pinansyal. Madalas ay apektado rin po ako sa mga problemang idinadaing ninyo--lalo na kung wala po ako'ng magawa...


Nakapanlulumo. Hindi ko naman po pwedeng ipasa isa isa ang inyong mga hinaing at pangangailang-medical sa Pangulo.

Tulad ng karamihan sa inyo, isa lang din naman akong ordinaryong mamamayan. Hindi po ako gov't. official o consultant. Hindi po ako pinanganak na mayaman. I had to work long and hard everyday (and night!) for the past 25 years just to be able to do what I do, provide for my family, and support some indigent sick children thru The Little Swallow.

It is frustrating and oftentimes depressing that, at the end of the day, I can only do so much... Sorry but I only have limited capacity, influence, and resources...

Sa mga pagkakataong wala po akong magawa at hindi ako makatulong sa inyo, huwag nyo naman po sanang ibunton at ipasa sa akin ang galit nyo sa sarili, sa mundo, at sa gobyerno. At lalong huwag ninyo idamay ang pamilya ko sa usapan. Hindi ako punching bag at hindi rin po unlimited ang pasensya ko. Hindi rin po ako blogger o public servant or fundraiser--at lalong hindi po ako magician or a goose that lays golden eggs. 

Huwag po kayo sa akin umasa o magalit ng wala sa lugar.

Sa halip ay:

Magalit po tayo sa korapsyon. Magalit tayo sa mga pulitiko at sa mga taong umabuso sa pondong pampumbliko. Magalit tayo sa mga walang pusong mambabatas at govt. officials noon man at ngayon na puro pansariling interes lamang ang pinu-protektahan. Magalit tayo sa mga tamad at mapagsamantala.

Tulungan at suportahan din natin ang Pangulo at ang mga kababayan nating tunay na lumalaban sa korapsyon at pilit na iniaangat ang antas ng buhay nating mga Filipino.

Sabayan din natin ng pagbabanat ng buto hangga't kaya pa ng katawan at isipan at sa pagtulong sa kapwa sa abot ng kakayahan.

At sana, gawin natin yan dahil yan ang tama. Gawin natin yan dahil yan ang dapat. Gawin natin yan--mayaman man tayo o mahirap. Gawin natin yan habang may lakas pa tayo at hindi lang kung mahina na ang katawan. Huwag lang tayo ngangawa kung kelan tayo na ang kawawa o nasa ibaba o nangangailangan.
