Rosalyn Ferrer, 50, and Rommel Basco, 55, from Pampanga, Philippines, have been together for 24 years.
They have six children. The family lives among the garbage in a wasteland. Their house is a shack built from what is found in the landfill.
Every day of this family is a struggle for survival. Rommel and Rosalyn are sorting garbage, collecting plastic and handing it over from morning to evening in order to somehow feed a large family. And so day after day, year after year.
Despite the difficulties and hardships, true love and mutual assistance reign in their small house.
Richard Strandz, the owner of a small barbershop located near the area where the family lives, said that he had noticed this couple for a long time.
The most important thing he always paid attention to was the kindness, love, and warmth with which Rosalyn and Rommel treat each other and their children.
Richard found out that the couple was not officially married. But Rosalyn once upon a time, as a child, dreamed of a beautiful wedding.
It is clear that they cannot afford even the most modest celebration. Richard was moved by their story and contacted friends who also have small businesses and pitched them the idea of holding a small charity wedding.
Everyone was delighted. Upon learning of the surprise, Rosalyn and Rommel could not hold back their tears.
Outfits were chosen for the lovers, Rosalyn got beautiful styling and makeup, treats were prepared for the whole family.
The photographer took a picture of a couple at their house and walked a little with them around the area. After Rosalyn and Rommel’s documents are restored, Richard and his friends will pay for their ceremony at the temple.
