One of the most important moments in most people’s lives is their wedding.
It is a spiritual celebration that commemorates the union of two loving hearts. Many people, however, cannot afford-it.
Rosalyn Ferrer & Rommel Basco, a homeless couple from Pampanga, Philippines, are in this predicament.
Despite having been together for 24 years, they had never been able to afford a wedding ceremony.
Their lives have been incredibly challenging.
They have six children and are just getting by financially as a family.
The two men who collect rubbish for scrap put food on the table with their little earnings, which barely cover their daily needs.
After learning about Rosalyn and Rommel’s struggle, a man called Richard Strandz surprised them with a gift.
Richard was impressed by the couple’s perseverance in the face of adversity, so when they couldn’t afford a wedding, he enlisted the support of some of his friends to give Rosaly and Rommel a makeover.
Richard’s compassionate act made the pair happy.
A photoshoot was held on the same streets where their relationship had blossomed.
