A homeless boy in the Philippines is getting help after a student snapped a photo of him doing his homework outside because he had nowhere else to go.
Joyce Torrefranca, a student in Mandaue City, posted the photos of the boy to Facebook on June 23, and they soon went viral in the country and spread across the world. "I got inspired by a kid," she wrote.
After the photo blew up, the Philippine news station ABS-CBN reported that it found the boy at a restaurant near where the picture was taken.
The boy was identified by the station as a third-grader named Daniel Cabrera. Daniel's mom, Christina Espinosa, who is a widow, and his sibling work at the restaurant.
The station reported that the family doesn't have a permanent place to live after their home was destroyed in a fire, and Daniel's mother is struggling to make ends meet. The family is temporarily living at the restaurant.
Espinosa makes 80 Philippine pesos a day, which is equal to about $1.77.
