A 50-year-old mentally disabled man from Vietnam has to look after his ailing mother who had always taken care of him all his life.
According to China Press, the woman, now in her 90s, had five children. Two of them passed away while another two got married and started families of their own.
Her youngest son has been mentally disabled ever since he was a child and has always been dependent on her. He grew up under the care of his mother.
However, now that that she is getting older and has many health problems, it has become very difficult for her to not only take care of her son, but to take care of herself.
Without sufficient money for medical bills, she just lies in bed thinking that “sleeping is just fine”.
Seeing his mother’s condition, the woman’s mentally disabled son decided to take up the responsibility of caring for his mother by himself. He knows that she has been the one taking care of him all these years and says that it is now his duty to honour her.
However, due to his mental disability, there’s no way for him to find work. So, he goes to the market every day to find work to make a living.
And because he’s worried about leaving his mother alone at home and afraid that something bad would happen to her, he would wake up before the sun rises while his mother is sleeping and return home by dawn.
He earns money by picking up rubbish and buys food for his mother. But because he knows that she is too sick to have solid foods, he would buy milk for her instead.
Additionally, he would change her diapers for her and clean her body.
News about this man and his dedication to his mother spread online where it touched the netizens in Vietnam.
We certainly are touched by this story too! Hopefully after news about this has spread, someone would be willing to help this poor family out.
