Stranded American vlogger is adopted by family in remote village

An American vlogger got stranded in a province in the Philippines due to the pandemic.

Filipinos are best known for our hospitality and warm hearts.

In global surveys designed to assess the friendliest nations, our country ranks consistently high.

The Philippines ranked seventh out of the 64 countries considered to accept foreigners, both visitors and expatriates.

In the aftermath of the pandemic of C0’VID-19, this positive attitude of ours took place again.

As we all know, the d34’dly virus has caused airlines to cancel flights, shut down airports, and countries to close borders.

Many visitors have found themselves stranded on foreign soil for months.

One such fellow is Dustin Borglin, a Michigan-based American backpacker.

Who found himself trapped in March when a lockdown was enforced in the Philippines.

After sharing his newfound life in the province of Cebu, Borglin captured the hearts of the Filipino online community.

Dustin has been sharing with the locals several vlogs and videos.

And he also helped collect money for the families who helped him in the midst of the pandemic and the lockdown.

The family of Raymund Adoptante adopted and aided Dustin.

Dustin has been sharing videos with Raymund and his family since then, doing different things together in the province.

He met the Baludoys, a family of seven, five of them girls, during his stay in the village.

The Americans not only stared at the destroyed house and sparse living conditions of the family and recognized it for what it was.

Dustin went into action. He volunteered to help renovate the Baludoys’ house.

For him, it was obviously a way of paying back the kindness not only of Raymund, but of the culture that accepted him as its own.

Dustin also gives the public an update on the day-to-day progress of the Baludoys’ house building.

A true act of kindness from Filipinos.
