John Hwang, a Los Angeles-based photographer, was walking downtown to work on his photo series highlighting people living on Skid Row.
It was there John met a young homeless man named Sang Kang. He snapped a photo of the man, who had a look of pain all over his face. Sang was wearing a hoodie sweatshirt, sitting outside on the verge of tears.
The photo was, to put it simply, absolutely heartbreaking.
Sang told John about the difficult challenges he’s been facing. First, his mother had passed away. Then, he lost contact with the rest of his family. In the midst of his loss, he became homeless and was robbed — losing his wallet, identification, and phone while living on the streets.
John was immediately taken by Sang’s story and knew he wanted to help him. He just didn’t know how. So, he posted Sang’s photo on social media, along with a message to the public.
“Not sure how I can best help him, but if anyone can provide assistance in some way, please let me know.”
Daniel Lee saw the powerful photo online and set out on a mission, along with two more local strangers, to track down Sang.
Watch the video below to see the incredible, selfless act of kindness that led to a group of strangers driving cross-country to help a man they didn’t even know get back home.
