Ronaldo and the Syrian Refugee Boy
Remember that time when a Hungarian journalist intentionally tripped a Syrian refugee carrying his son?
Well, the story of Osama Alabed Almohse (the father in the picture) and his youngest son, Ziad, immediately became international news and word spread that Almohse was a soccer coach in Syria. He was then offered a teaching job at CENAFE which is a Spanish school that trains coaches. And it didn't stop there. Last Thursday, Real Madrid president, Florentine Perez, invited Almohse, and his two sons, Mohammad and Ziad, to Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, the home and heart of Real Madrid.
But something even greater happened over the weekend during a match between Real Madrid and Granada. Ziad got to walk onto the field of Santiago Bernabeu with his hero and the sport's most recognizable star, Cristiano Ronaldo. Also, Ronaldo and his teammates wore T-shirts that showed their support for all the refugees that have fled Syria.
And Real Madrid said the club plans on donating 1 million euros toward the humanitarian cause and help out the Syrian refugees. The club plans on helping Almohse attain refugee status in Spain, but he'll have to first learn how to speak Spanish.
Hopefully they can start a new life in Spain and never have to go through the terrible experience they had a few weeks ago.
