MANDAUE, Philippines - A child in the Philippines is being called inspirational by doing what he can to study and get an education.
A photograph of 9-year-old Daniel Cabrera went viral recently after capturing him studying by the light of a McDonald's.
Cabrera's mother is a widow. His father died in 2013. Christina Espinosa and her three youngest children including Daniel live in her boss's small grocery store. Their home, which was described as a shanty, was destroyed by fire. Espinosa earns just $1.77 a day working at the store and for the owners at their home, The Telegraph reported.
Now cash, school supplies, and school uniforms have been donated. A scholarship has also been offered that would give Cabrera an education through college. A local church and a government's social welfare office also received donations to help the boy, The Telegraph reported.
Daniel said he would like to be policeman when he grows up.
