Not even the hoops hiatus can stop the Nieto twins from handing out assists.

Service seems to run in the blood of Mike and Matt Nieto as they tap their wide network to help their uncle and ninong, who also happens to be mayor of their city in delivering goods and services to the people of Cainta.

Being high-profile athletes with the Ateneo Blue Eagles in the UAAP and now in the PBA, the Nieto twins have called on friends to help their townmates.

“Nakikipag-usap kami sa mga teammates, coaches, at mga taong malalapit sa amin kung paano kami makakapag-padala nang kahit kaunting tulong lalo na pagdating sa pagkain para sa mga tao ng Cainta para matulungan naman namin si Ninong Kit,” Mike shared with SPIN Life.

Matt added: “We understand that we have a following, a platform, and a network we could leverage on so as to bring in as much help, donations, and support to Cainta as we can during these trying times.

"Hence, as much as we can, we try to look into our networks, post on our social media pages, and really coordinate with people willing to help, so that, together, we get to bring different forms of help to the communities in Cainta while inspiring and mobilizing others to do the same.”

“We have the added strength and stamina to carry goods, to repack goods, and so on. These are very trying times we are in. A lot of Cainteños rely on contractual or informal work. The lockdown has left them without constant aources of income - no work, no pay eh. They have to find a way to get food on the table everyday,” Matt said.

With the Cainta Mayor gaining acclaim on social media for his dynamic style of leadership, the brothers shared that having witnessed their ninong work, they can attest that the service he’s long been doing goes over and above his job description.

“We’ve always looked up to our ninong, Mayor Kit, now even more so," said Mayor Kit. "You know, seeing him at work especially now, makes you realize that he is no longer doing this just to answer his call of duty. He’s doing all of this because he really cares for his people — hindi na ito trabaho, pagmamahal na ito.

"I think it’s evident in how he goes above and beyond 24/7 just to make sure his people are supported. No one will do that just because his job calls for it. He does this because he loves the people he is doing it for.

"His heart and dedication are what I admire about him the most. I’m glad he’s getting the recognition and appreciation he has always deserved."

When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.

You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.

You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
