How a student from St. Petersburg brought a Tajik writer back to life

Posted on July 15, 2016 by Andrey


Student Alexander Gushchin from St. Petersburg helped find the family of a homeless man who has lost his memory. One day, he saw a homeless man hiding from the rain under a tree and gave him his umbrella. After this, the young man began to bring him food on a regular basis and talk with him. It turned out that the homeless is a Tajik writer Mir Zafar, who arrived in the northern capital to work on his new book. After the writer had a stroke, he lost his memory, and his documents were stolen. He landed on the street. Alexander decided to help his new friend and began to act.

“He told me that he had a stroke! He is too weak to walk! He told me that he had been repeatedly beaten. He does not have documents, so I cannot help him with moving back home – he’s from Yakutsk, and he has a brother in Tula. There is also a son who loves him. I help him any way I can – I really want to bring him back to a normal human life. Dear friends, if you know anything about this man, please contact me at the number … “, wrote Alexander Gushchin in social networks.

Shortly after this post the relatives of the Mir Zafar were found, and the Embassy of Tajikistan began to recover his passport so that he could return to his homeland after a year of homeless life in St. Petersburg.

Look carefully next time someone asks you for some spare change, it might be another progeny from the East stuck in your city, ask him about his life, maybe he needs help!

    This help is really good example of humanity.
