A young Yemeni medical student studying in Germany hadn’t met his family in six years, so his amazing colleagues flew them in to surprise him on his birthday.
The moment was captured on camera and the emotional scene not only moved people around him at his workplace, but others online as well.
In the viral video, the man is first shown a video message from his parents on an iPad. And if that wasn’t enough to move him to tears, his colleagues then brought in his parents to leave him overwhelmed.
This student from Yemen is studying medicine for the last 6 years in Germany. Never seen his parents in as many years due to lack of resources.
His colleagues decided to surprise him on his birthday by ✈️ his parents to Germany.

Be grateful to when you have thoughtful people around you who notice and understand what is going on with you even if they don’t provide you with solution, they will console and encourage you to focus on your goal. #Humanity
