Father & Son Handed Out Christmas Cards Across North East To Homeless

Meet the father and son giving out festive Christmas cards to homeless people across the North East.

MD and son Usman decided to hand out Christmas cards, toiletries and money to those who are sleeping rough this festive season.

MD is an asylum seeker and after being a victim to human trafficking, came to the UK.

Speaking to local press, he said “The response was quite fantastic, as it involved that little man and trying to teach the compassions and being there for his community. It was a wonderful response”.

“I’ve managed to save some money since last month, as I’m an asylum seeker and I get very limited money, but we have decided to put £5 each in those little lovely cards. We also had some body spray and other things we gave them as well.

“My son is committed to continuing it. Just to make some people happy and smile, share the compassions and love everyone.”

MD has also been helping with the vaccine roll out, by volunteering with the NHS recently.
