In May, a man named Álvaro Romero published a photo of Mauro and his daughter at the stoplight on Facebook, and wrote this heartwarming message:
“I don’t know his name, I know him because I saw him working on the street, doing odd jobs. She is his little girl, besides he has his wife and a younger child. Here he is seen working while his daughter does her homework. That little girl deserves every opportunity. Let’s help, thank you ”.
The post went viral, gaining almost 5,000 shares before reaching another man named Agustín, a stranger who had once been a client of Mauro’s.
Agustín was in a position to help, so he approached Mauro to offer him a permanent job opportunity with a construction company.
Mauro was a hard worker from the area who took to the streets to provide cleaning services for passing cars’ windshields. He would arrive at the same intersection every day to offer work to passing cars in order to support his family.
He was supporting his wife, Ruth, and their two children, a two-year-old boy named Santiago and a six-year-old girl named Guadalupe.
It was dangerous for her to stay at home with Ruth and her younger brother due to another family member who had developed a dangerous relationship with alcohol, so Guadalupe would join her father every day to wait for work.
For almost half a decade, Mauro put everything he had into supporting his family, waiting for a stroke of good luck. It was a terrifying and disheartening situation, and Mauro told TN.com that he often worried for his own life.“I thought I was going to die at the traffic light,” he told reporters.
What he didn’t know was that the kindness of a stranger was about to change his life.
Mauro admitted that he was overwhelmed by the sudden changes and had feared the position was temporary and he would be forced back onto the street.
Luckily, although the situation might look too good to be true, it wasn’t, and with a permanent, reliable job, and a boss that truly cared about the wellbeing of his family, dreams have become much closer to reality.
Mauro’s wife Ruth was also offered domestic work by her neighbors, and the couple was able to keep chasing their dreams and enroll both of their children in school.
“We are happy,” Mauro said. “Now we have to get up early every day to go somewhere, we know that at night we will be under a roof again and that when the month ends, we will collect our money.”
