The little Hero
Bucharest. Centre of Bucharest.
An improvised area with improvised houses burned down because of an electrical issue. Robert was playing football with other boys while he heard his brothers screaming.
He runs back home and saw his house on fire with his brothers inside. He tried to break the door - impossible, he tried to crash the windows...he finally managed.
He got his younger brothers out, after that he used a carpet to stop the fire. He saved all of them, but he couldn’t save himself
Issue: burned all over the body - brain tumour
7 500 EURO- surgery for tumour extirpation
10 000 EURO - other surgeries
