Woman Asks The Internet To Help Find A Man

Some things just can’t be forgotten, no matter how hard you try, no matter how old you get. Like knowing how to ride a bike. Or an act of kindness so sweet that it leaves an indelible mark on your heart, forever.

Twitter user Mevan Babakar recently asked for the internet’s help in finding the kind person from her past who gave her a bicycle as a gift when she was 5 years old and living in a refugee camp. Not only did the internet dig up the kind-hearted man’s name, but Mevan also met up with him once again in just 36 hours! We love reunions that make us feel all warm inside!

29-year-old Mevan, who according to her online profile is a huge pancake lover, told the internet a tear-jerking story from her childhood. She was born in Baghdad, Iraq, to Kurdish parents, and spent a year of her childhood as a refugee near Zwolle in the Netherlands. One day, a man working at the camp bought Mevan a shiny new bicycle, which left such a deep impression that she never ever forgot about it.

Wanting to meet the man once again to properly thank him, Mevan reached out to the internet for help. And boy, did the internet deliver! Mevan’s plea for help went viral, and within a day and a half she was already meeting up with the man named Egbert — an orchid-lover who doesn’t smile in photos. The pair met in Germany where Egbert lives, and Mevan bought him a postcard with an old man riding a bicycle as a gift. We think it’s very fitting!
