Wow! Not something we see every day.
On a rainy day in Atakum, Samsun, a young man gave his shoes
to a barefoot child on the tram. After giving the child his shoes,
the good-deed-doer went on his own way barefooted. The incident
was recorded by another passenger on the tram, Emre Enes Köse,
a high school student, who then posted the video on social media.
Köse related that there were two Syrian children, about 11-years-old,
on the tram. One of the children's shoes were worn out and the other
child had no shoes at all. "Then this young fellow came along, took
off his shoes and gave them to the barefooted Syrian child. The
child at first refused but was then persuaded to accept the shoes.
It was raining so the young fellow had to go on his own way without
shoes. I wanted to immortalize the moments because it was quite a
beautiful scene. Everyone on the tram was affected by it.
Tramvay workers of SAMULAŞ thanked the young fellow and
began to look for assistance for the Syrian children.
