It appears that a resident of the Saudi city of Hail, in Saudi Arabia, has placed a refrigerator outside of his home and asked his neighbors to fill it with food for the less fortunate.
According to the Gulf News Daily, the man, who likes to remain unnamed, informed neighbors that doing so would prevent the shame of asking for food from the impoverished.
After prominent Saudi Muslim cleric Sheikh Mohamad al-Arefe tweeted his support for the tale, it quickly gained traction: “I’ve always thought the people of Hail are charitable. A man gives leftover food to the less fortunate by placing a refrigerator outside his home.
Oh, Hail, how I love thee. According to the Saudi news website Akhbar 24, Sheikh al-Arefe has 8.6 million followers on Twitter and his statement was shared more than 5,000 times.
