A photo tells million people

No one wants to be poor, and people always struggle to meet their needs and find happiness. Well, everyone that is except for a certain grandpa named Bai Fang Li, who is happy to give up his happiness in order to help young students living in poverty.

For 20 years he has pedaled a cyclo just so he can donate money to support the education of poor students. Even as he approaches the end of his life, grandpa Bai Fang Li still donates money to them – he is a great man whose is perhaps is more generous as anybody else in the world.

On his Facebook page, there about 13,000 likes, 4,000 shares and many comments.

Nazli Ab Halim declares “This man is a saint”.

For Arti Angel, he is a “True hero!”

“Thank you, sir, you made me understand what sacrificial love is,” posted William Chui on the Facebook page.

Earl Matthew Fortun Uy felt some more fortunate members of Cambodian society could learn a thing or two from old grandpa Bai Fang Li.

“A lot of people will miss your great deeds. I hope those greedy politicians will realise how this poor man pursued a great cause for the poor. Hats off to Mr Bai Fang Li,” he posted.

There are many people around the world from different walks of life commenting and sharing information on Facebook, including Cambodia’s Minister of Information, Khieu Kanharith.

And the conversation about grandpa Bai Fang Li spilled over on Khieu Kanharith, who stated that he wished to raise awareness of Bai Fang Li to the rich.

“Rich people in Cambodia should learn from this memorable man,” replied Denien P. Neth in a post.

“He’s poor in assets, but not poor in heart or kindness. A true hero!” chimed in Visoth Sean.

We should start thinking and change our ways rapidly. When small acts of kindness, love and humanity are multiplied by millions of united people, we can transform the world – change ourselves in order to change the world.
