a turkish gym has won the hearts of a nation by offering a twelve-year-old syrian refugee (难民) a free lifetime membership after a photo of him staring through its window spread on the internet.
muhammet halit, who works as a shoeshiner in adiyaman province, southern turkey, was pictured outside the centre with a footstool (脚凳) fixed on his back, looking at the equipment inside in a photograph that hit thousands of people’s hearts around turkey.
the owner of the gym saw the picture and offered the boy a pass to use the equipment.
the owner told hurriyet daily news: "a boy, looking through the gym window, wearing slippers (拖鞋) in the middle of winter and carrying his backpack.
"our aim (目的) was to find him and offer him a lifetime membership here. and, we did it. he is one of our members now."
the two posed for a photograph together inside the fitness centre and muhammet was pictured using the weight machines.
the youngster was shocked when reporters came down to the gym to interview the owner and his newest member.
