For Abu Tratter, he simply couldn’t afford to see some of his kababayans struggle amid the coronavirus pandemic.

So in his own way, the Alaska Aces sophomore is making sure to be of help to those in need.

Tratter wrote in an Instagram post Saturday that he has prepared his first box of relief goods that seeks to feed 50 families in Siniloan, Laguna — the place where he was born.

Laguna has been placed under total lockdown this Saturday as COVID-19 cases have risen in the province.

As of Saturday, the province has been put on total lockdown after 23 cases have been verified as of publishing.

“Can’t sit still and be sheltered in my little bubble while I see or hear about these people suffering. So I’m preparing my first box of relief goods to feed fifty families here in my barangay in Laguna,” he wrote.

With this, Tratter has become the latest PBA player to extend a helping hand to those affected by the pandemic.

His team has also dished out support to those hit by the health crisis, donating half in the PHP 100,000-pledge made by Aces head coach Jeff Cariaso that aims to help the league’s gameday personnel.

For the De La Salle University product, he believes that it is a responsibility to assist the less fortunate in times like this.

“The fight against hunger was here before the pandemic and going to be hereafter. It’s our responsibility to take care of those less fortunate, no matter how small you think it is!”
