A millionaire offered gifts that changed the life of a boy who became famous after being photographed doing his homework under a lamppost.
The video of Víctor Martín Angulo Córdoba, captured by the video surveillance device of the city of Moche, has moved millions of people around the world. Without electricity for lack of money, the little Victor, 12, was forced to use a lamp to do his homework.
After seeing the video, Yaqoob Yusuf Ahmed Mubarak, 31, a philanthropist from Bahrain, decided to help the boy. He had Víctor’s house rebuilt, turning it into two stories.
The philanthropic millionaire revealed that he also comes from humble beginnings, similar to Víctor. He hopes his kindness will ensure a bright future Victor and his family.
In this way, she will be able to ensure the future of her son who now enjoys a better quality of life and better study conditions
Victor and his family expressed their overwhelming gratitude to Yaqoob to local news: “Thank you for the help you are offering, thank you very much because you are helping us to build our school. I thank the people who want to do this to me [build my house]. I thank them very much that they have had that kindness and they have given time to come to my humble home, because anyone does not do it.”
