Have you ever wondered what a true act of love means? Perhaps for some people it is about giving something material; for others, it means spending time with that special someone without giving or receiving anything in return.
But, there are few people who, when thinking of having an act of love, the beneficiary is someone other than their family circle, or their close friends.
Certainly, while homeless people or stray dogs can move us and leave us with a heavy heart, rarely do we really decide to act. And they simply need an act of love to change their lives forever.
Homeless boy clings to his puppy on the street to keep each other warm and give each other love
Unfortunately, there are still a large number of street children who spend their days wandering from one place to another doing miracles to find something to eat.
Recently, a photo of a little homeless boy sleeping hugging his puppy, who has become his faithful companion and only family, has gone viral.
Users in the networks demand the intervention of the Department of protection for minors immediately
The sad images reveal two little beings, so different, but both vulnerable.
Unfortunately, his helpless condition does not seem to worry anyone, since there are many who pass by him, indifferent, ignoring that on the ground there are two bodies that are crying out to be rescued.
Or perhaps it is that they simply did not want to notice, or look beyond their noses.
The boy has not yet been identified, and it is not known whether he was orphaned or abandoned by his parents.
Until now, it is only known that he sleeps next to his pet on the sidewalk near the central train station in Manila, Philippines.
This little boy, despite everything that has happened, has not abandoned his puppy, demonstrating his great bond and the true meaning of love.
The photos were captured by Jem Villomo, a young man who lives near the city and shared them on his Facebook account in the hope of raising awareness and getting someone to give them all the help they deserve. In this regard he comments:
“The boy lives on the street together with his dog. He does not ask for money but food for both of them.”
Sadly stories like these are repeated throughout history. Let us remember Rommen Quemenales, another 11-year-old boy who lives on the streets and also found his greatest consolation in a puppy.
These stories cannot help but cause us indignation and lack of sensitivity to act and give these children, along with their pets, the life they deserve.
Although the Department of Social Welfare and Development is the entity that must watch over minors in the Philippines, to date there have been no major changes.
Rommen Quemenales is also from the Philippines, he only has his puppy Badgi.
The greatest certainty is that this child has a puppy as his only family, together they sleep in each other’s arms hoping to wake up and find someone who will change their lives.
They only have each other revealing the most sincere love that is reciprocal despite the difficult situation in which they find themselves.
Please, do not hesitate to help the most vulnerable and let’s do acts of love that change the lives of beings who need it so much.
