Nieto twins Mike and Matt have been extending a helping hand to their kababayans in Cainta in the face of COVID-19.
Their latest assist came in the form of boxes of washable face masks which they donated to the municipal government. "Hindi lang naman kami ang tumutulong sa Cainta. Sobrang daming tao na ang nagbigay ng kani-kanilang tulong para makaraos sa pagsubok na 'to," Mike said.
Even better, the Nieto twins have also been doing their part in extending a helping hand to Cainta in preventing the continued spread of COVID-19. pic.twitter.com/TdGbwR8Qc3— Normie Riego (@riegogogo) March 20, 2020
He then continued, "Ginagawa lang naman namin ni Matt ang tama para makatulong din kay ninong at sa mga taong nangangailangan ngayon."
The ninong Mike was referring to was Kit Nieto who has been praised in social media for how he has handled the COVID-19 crisis as mayor of Cainta.
"We're super proud kay ninong. He really changed the municipality of Cainta and I'm sure the people of Cainta can back me up on this," Matt shared. "Ever since Day 1 nung naging mayor siya, he has been fulfilling his job as servant-leader ng Cainta."
Apparently, the mayor of Cainta is close to the Ateneo de Manila University's championship-winning twins. "Super close namin. Lagi kaming nagkukwentuhan," he said.
He then continued, "Ako, tungkol my basketball career ang sinasabi sa kanya. Siya, kung anong ginagawa niya for Cainta."
In fact, Kit was present in the jersey retirement ceremony for the Nieto twins in Ateneo Grade School.
Now, the brothers are going out of their way to show their godfather that they also have his back. "Ngayon, kami naman ang sumusuporta sa kanya. Natulungan niya ako sa maraming bagay, sinuportahan niya ako sa UAAP career ko so ngayon, kahit maliit na bagay, I'm helping him," Matt said.
