MANILA -- A video showing a five-year-old girl who helps her blind father in his work has gone viral, with over two million views.

Nelson Pepe, also known as "Dodong," works in a copra farm. Despite his disability, he still manages to climb coconut trees to provide for his family.

His daughter, Jenny, has become his eyes, with the girl guiding him to get to the copra farm.

Pepe earns around P300 a day by climbing around 60 coconut trees or P5 a tree.

After the video posted by Rubylyn Capunes Pabillion went viral, "Rated K" went to Sogod, Southern Leyte to pay a visit to Pepe.

Pepe was also brought to Manila, where he was diagnosed with retinal detachment and retinitis pigmentosa.

With the help of ABS-CBN Foundation and "Rated K," Pepe will undergo livelihood training. His family will also be relocated to a safer environment.
