This Boy Collects Trash For A Living And Spent His Day’s Wages On Helping A Small Kitten
A young boy in Afghanistan has just shown the world what kindness and compassion truly means.
Though he makes a meager living collecting rags and metal on the streets, recycling them for a few rupees a day, he still felt rich enough to share his earnings.
A video of the young Pashtun boy posted to Twitter explains how he bought milk for a stray kitten, rather than spend the 20 Rs on lunch for himself.
“Meet My Hero, a little poor #Pashtun boy who earns his living through collecting trashed paper & metal, he bought milk for this little kitten instead of buying a lunch for himself. This boy is mightier than millions of other Humans #Respect #Salute,” tweeted Shahid_Pashteen.
The Twittersphere soon erupted with reactions to this random act of generosity. Several called for the local government to help the young boy get enrolled in school, while many others praised his kindheartedness as nothing short of heroic.
