Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Warming Smile and Something to Eat


--by farahlotfy, posted Feb 3, 2018
We have a lot of people begging in the streets here in Egypt. I try to give them food or something they can actually use rather than just giving them money.

So I always try to have a bag of sweets in my car so whenever anyone asks for money I ask if they would like something to eat instead. Sometimes people just take the food and leave or they actually decline the food and say they want money instead.

One day I saw this mother who was carrying her baby and she asked for money - I told her I have food if she wants some, she thanked me a lot and I gave her the whole bag. She thanked me again and called for the rest of her kids to come and eat something. Her smile really made my day.
