It is a tragedy that has touched the whole world. Rayan, five, did not survive his fall into a well. Shocked by this news, football player Abderrazak Hamdallah decided to come to the aid of the child’s family. Light on this beautiful gesture of solidarity.
The sad news came on Saturday, February 6. After five days of being trapped in a dry pit 32 meters deep in the Moroccan province of Chefchaouen, little Rayan left. After this announcement, which plunged the country into immense emotion, Abderrazak Hamdallah, striker of Al Ittihad’s club, in Saudi Arabia, made an announcement on social networks.
The footballer will offer a fully furnished house to Khalid Aourram and Ouassima Kharchich, the boy’s parents. An outpouring of generosity to “bring a little joy to Rayan’s family,” as he explains in his Instagram post.
But that’s not all, Abderrazak Hamdallah is also launching a global call for solidarity. The Moroccan footballer invites everyone who can, especially public figures, to help these relatives.
Here is the text transcribed below:
“We have crossed five very distant days and our hearts have been ripped from us, from us Moroccans, from all Arabs and Muslims, and even from the whole world. […] I extend my deepest condolences to Ryan’s family.
I have decided, in my name and in the name of my family, and in the name of all Moroccans and Muslims, to help Rayan’s family, his parents and his brothers and bring a little joy by offering a fully equipped home. […] It is an invitation to anyone who can help, including actors, singers, athletes, officials and celebrities. †
A gesture of great generosity.
