After the snapshot of a boy sleeping on the sidewalk with his dog in his arms hit the Internet, it literally exploded. The photo was taken in the Philippines, the city of Manila.
Users were more outraged by the fact that a child lying on the asphalt was of no interest to anyone, although cars were passing by, people were walking around, because there was a train station nearby, where it was always crowded.
A huge number of caring people demanded from the government of the country to help the boy.
When the circumstances were clarified, it turned out that the child is 13 years old and his name is Nicholas Cristobal. He lives on the street due to the fact that he was left an orphan, his parents died of Tuberculosis. And the dog remained the only dear and close creature.
The locals know about the homeless boy, they have already got used to him and have stopped paying attention.
The man who photographed this heartbreaking picture said that Nicholas begs for alms every day and buys food for himself and the dog with it.
At this point, it remains to be seen whether the government helped the boy.
