While adults are working to provide housing for the homeless, this youngster took it upon himself to give a little boy his shoes and socks.
9-year-old Cheikh Faizal was walking with his father through Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia last week when they passed a transit station that is often frequented by homeless people.
Cheikh then spotted a barefooted homeless boy sitting with his mother on the street. According to Chekih’s father Sofian, his son felt compelled to help the youngster because he looked about the same age as Cheikh.
Cheikh then ran to the boy’s side, sat down, and removed his sneakers and socks so he could personally put them on the feet of his new friend. Not only that, he gave the boy several kisses on the cheek before continuing down the street with his father.
Sofian was so proud of his son’s compassion, he filmed the exchange and later posted it to social media in hopes that it would inspire other people.
“My son saw the young boy without shoes and made the decision to help him,” said Sofian.
“He showed his love for everyone there, even though they are homeless. He then went home without his shoes.
“Hopefully, everybody in the world will see this positive message and we can make life better for every human being. There are many homeless people but if everybody makes a small gesture of kindness we can improve their lives.”
