MANILA -- Here in the Philippines, food delivery riders are considered by many as non-medical frontliners for continuing to bring meals to those stuck at home amid the enhanced community quarantine.

Despite their efforts, some of them end up spending money on canceled orders -- prompting a Facebook group to step in and help.

In Order Hero, riders of GrabFood, Foodpanda, Lalamove, and Angkas Food can post their canceled transactions for other group members to buy. 

It has more than 12,000 members as of writing, with the page getting many successful exchanges between riders and their new customers.

A number of drivers expressed their gratitude to the group for their efforts, prompting other members to salute their dedication to their work.
