She noticed a man, limping, selling tissue at the petrol station. Promptly, she stopped her car and offered him cash.

“He refused the money immediately and told me if I could help him get grocery items,” Thevisha said.

Further into the conversation, the father, Yoges, expressed his need for grocery items, revealing the dire circumstances he faced.

Following an accident, he was left with a disability that caused him to limp, making it difficult to find a job. Unable to secure work, he resorted to selling tissue paper to support his two daughters.

Thevisha added that due to the struggle, his daughters had to halt their education. She also mentioned that he also struggled with transportation due to a problematic bike.

Despite his hardships, Yoges remained determined to provide for his daughters, expressing his hope that groceries would enable him to cook for them.

Touched by his sincerity, Thevisha then shared her contact information with him, inviting him to visit her shop to collect the groceries.

Before departing, she made a stop at the nearest fast-food restaurant and purchased dinner for him.

Yoges received unwanted calls

Speaking exclusively to WeirdKaya, Thevisha revealed that Yoges did not come to her shop to collect the groceries because he was feeling indecisive about it.

Shocked by what had happened to him, Thevisha spent the whole day trying to console him and make him feel better.

Thevisha wants equality

In the interview, the compassionate woman, who encountered such a heartrending situation, further questions the equality everyone has in this country.

“It’s not as if everyone has a choice. It’s easy to say ‘go and get a job.’ But does everyone truly have equal opportunities?”

“I believe a country achieves true wealth when there are no homeless individuals or people begging anymore. So, if Yoges is unable to provide for his kids, I see it as a failure of the country too, because not everyone has the same chances in life and opportunities aren’t equally distributed,” she expressed.

Thevisha also urges for help in spreading Yoges’ story, hoping that together, people can work towards easing the difficulties faced by him and his daughters.
