Thanks to a young man, a 81-year-old homeless immigrant meets again his family of origin. It has happened in Paris, where the 24 year-old French man Massinissa has decided voluntarily to take care of the old and sweet Abdel, of Algerian origins. The story of this lucky friendship began in January. When Massinissa, while walking to work, met by chance in the street Abdel, a frightened, distrustful and confused old man. Who touched the heart of the young man so much so that he decided to listen to his story, host him and help him find his family. So, thanks to videos and photos posted on a Facebook page, the old man’s loved ones from Algeria and France have finally recognized their uncle left 60 years before and contacted Massinissa to meet and take care of him.
