I gifted him a pair of shoes and we grew attached. The next day, he came back with a crate of apples for me. I wasn’t there at the time, but, when I returned, he ran to say ‘hi’ and only then accepted something to eat. After meeting with his family, I decided to sponsor his (Mir’s) education and pay for any medical expenses. The family was very emotional, but they were happy someone wanted to help out”.
