HINDUSTAN TIMES – A homeless Filipino boy has been overwhelmed with aid after a photo of him studying on the pavement and using faint light from a McDonald’s outlet went viral on the internet.

Nine-year-old Daniel Cabrera will fulfil his dream of becoming a policeman after donations of cash, school supplies and a college scholarship poured in, his mother, Christina Espinosa, told AFP on Friday.

“We’re overjoyed. I don’t know what I will do with all of these blessings,” the stunned 42-year-old grocery store employee and domestic helper told AFP.

“Now, Daniel will not have to suffer just to finish his studies.”

The photo, posted on Facebook last month by a college student, showed Cabrera doing his homework on a wooden stool placed close to a McDonald’s window to catch the light from the store.

The 20-year-old medical technology student, Joyce Torrefranca, captioned her Facebook post: “I got inspired by a kid.”

It was then shared close to 7,000 times on the social networking site and reported by local television.

  1. There is a God and for that, there is always hope. Thank you Jesus, you did it again. Thanks to all the human angles who made it all possible for this young man and his family.

    • He has enough help already,so many underprivileged kids in St.Lucia but you want to help one in the UK who's already receiving funds.
