Good Samaritan Sees Homeless Woman Barefoot On Train, But His Viral Act Of Kindness Brings Her To Tears.

Shoes aren’t a big deal to most of us. It’s highly likely that you have shoes in your closet that haven’t seen the light of day in years – I’m right there with you. Unfortunately, for some, shoes aren’t just another luxury and fashion accessory but a desperate need that goes unmet.

Homelessness in Serbia is a big problem. There is also some severe cold temperatures in the winter. One man’s heart was tugged when he saw a barefoot homeless woman traveling on the train in Belgrade, Serbia. So Rade Jovanović decided to step up and do something about it.

“When I saw her bare feet, I had a huge desire to help her and wanted to find some shoes for her that would stop her feet from being cold,” said Jovanović. “At work I had some old shoes that I’d bought and I decided to keep them in my backpack until I met her again.”

When he saw the homeless woman again, he reached into his bag and pulled out the shoes. Full of love, he knelt down and put the shoes on the woman along with a bag of food.

The woman was full of emotion at his kind gesture.

Luckily, a passenger on the train recorded the act. “She was thrilled, her eyes were watering,” he said.

Jovanović reminds us that no matter what anyone looks like, their souls are the most important thing.

We hope this kind act inspires you to see a need around you and love someone well.
