Visibly Sick Foreigner Begs for Money in the Streets of Dipolog City in Southern Philippines

With his lower legs looking like the skin had come off due to some illness or injury, a foreigner begs in the streets of Dipolog City in Zamboanga del Norte, Southern Philippines while carrying a small sign stating, “Please help me. I have no money. Thank you.”

While he was not identified by Facebook page Filipino Netizens, some of those who commented in the post shared that his name is Don Jenkins, the husband of a Filipina named Genalyn Camanse Jenkins. A lot of those who commented on the post slammed the foreigner’s Filipina wife for abandoning him now that he has no money – for such has happened to many foreigners who were captivated by the beauty of the locals.

There were those who volunteered to help Jenkins by giving him money so he could get home or, at least, go to the embassy where his countrymen could help him get back home.
