Ajelou Madayao was an OFW working in Dammam, Saudi Arabia when her employer suddenly canceled her employment. With no money and savings, she asked the help of idol Raffy Tulfo in going home to her province of Mati, Davao Oriental to be reunited with her family. The kind-hearted TV and Radio personality, well known for his public service readily helped her.
A True Public Servant
The Tulfo brothers have long been known for their hard-hitting stance on political issues and their public service programs. But one of the brothers, Raffy Tulfo, has become very popular for his no-nonsense public service program, Raffy Tulfo In Action.
The program has helped thousands of Filipinos in need, earning the monicker “sumbungan ng Bayan”. Raffy Tulfo has proven time and again his genuine intention of helping the people. With millions of followers online, Raffy Tulfo has set his sights on earning a seat in Congress, through the party list ACT-CIS.
When Raffy Tulfo received the cry for help from Ajelou Madayao and heard her story, he did not hesitate to help her and decided it would also be a good opportunity to visit the people of her hometown in Sitio Mapula, Brgy. Cabuaya, Mati, Davao Oriental.
Idol Raffy shouldered the expenses of the hapless OFW and even bought “pasalubong” for Madayao’s son who is graduating from Elementary education. Knowing the plight that Madayao suffered, Tulfo also gave her some capital to start a business, so that she would not need to go abroad and stay with her family.
Rock Star Popularity
In the photos shared by Raffy Tulfo In Action on Facebook, idol Raffy can be seen posing with Madayao’s family as they were reunited after a long time. There were also photos of people of Brgy. Cabuaya enjoying their photo op with the popular radio host.
There is no denying the popularity of idol Raffy Tulfo, with his clean track record and genuine affinity to help, many said that if he chose to run as a senator, he would likely win it. For now, he is satisfied with a seat in Congress, and god willing, he would surely make a difference in Congress if ever he wins.
