Dad makes schoolbag out of raffia string for his kid because he canâ€™t afford to buy one
Though Fatherâ€™s Day has just passed us by, the dad appreciation still continues.
Today, the love goes to this Cambodian father who couldnâ€™t afford to buy a schoolbag for his child, so he made one instead â€“ with RAFFIA STRING.
In a Facebook post by Sophous Suon, pictures of a bright blue bag weaved together using raffia string were shown worn by a young schoolboy.
The bag appeared to be very well made with the string in perfect symmetry, complete with a clasp and straps.
It could even fit in a couple of schoolbooks.
These pictures were accompanied with an explanation by Sophous that roughly translates to â€œThis bag, his father is the one who makes it (made of plastic string). Fatherâ€™s heart for the children is goodâ€
The post which has garnered almost 6,000 shares at the time of writing was filled with positive messages and admiration for the incredible father.
We donâ€™t know about you, but this story really warms our hearts
and goes to show how amazing dads can really be.
