His smile is worth a million words.
Homelessness has always been a problem around the world and not only in under developed countries. There are social causes of homelessness, such as a lack of affordable housing, poverty and unemployment; and life events which cause individuals to become homeless. People can become homeless when they leave prison, care or the army with no home to go to. In the end, more and more people are left in the streets with nothing to eat, nowhere to go, and no one to turn to. As more and more people are ignoring them, many homeless and needy people are left with no hope of living any longer.
Thankfully, there are people who choose to be different. There have been groups and individuals who have helped the homeless and the needy in the past years, changing both the giver and the receiver’s lives forever. Those who have witnessed these kinds of selfless actions get inspired and try to do the same thing–and hopefully the cycle never stops until the world beats homelessness.
In a post on Facebook, yet another inspiring story has touched the hearts of many netizens. A series of photos revealed how a man was rescued from the streets. He was groomed and given a make over by his rescuers. He was fed and given a good time–something he hasn’t experienced for years. To put a cherry on top, they took him swimming! His smiles throughout the post just shows how happy he was after being rescued and given hope by these men.
Many netizens commented and shared the photos, saying how the man’s smile brought smiles to their faces as well.
One netizen said: “His smile makes me cry! happy for u kuya god bless you all.”
