Stories of Kindness from Around the World

The Baker, the Tailor, the Ray of Hope.

Many people have experienced negative consequences as a result of the Covid restrictions. This includes small business owners who were forced to close. However, there has also been a chance for some people to demonstrate great acts of kindness and shine a ray of hope. 

One of my friends owns a bakery. Because of the lockdowns, he ran into a financial crisis. He had to shut his shop for months causing his debts to mount up. 

My friend had previously rented his apartment to a tailor, but this man also struggled to earn a living due to the impact of COVID. Even after the restrictions were lifted his business was not picking. Somehow the tailor managed to arrange for the rent to be paid to my friend after months. However, my friend refused to take the money. He discovered that the tailor had sold one of his machines to pay it. He advised the tailor to buy back his machine and not to worry until the situation had improved
 
My friend is now out of debt as the bakery was allowed to do some business through online vending. Though there are some restrictions, he was able to manage his earnings.  

I feel his benevolence gave us all a ray of hope and helped him to clear his debts.
