It is every parent’s desire that their kids take care of them at old age, but for a man named Dominico the reverse is sadly the case.
Dominico’s 88-year-old father and 81-year-old mother feed and care for him every day due to the fact that he is disabled.
The 60-year-old who is their first son has spent 40 years of his life in a basket.
According to Afrimax that shared the man’s touching story, he was born normal like every able-bodied human.
Despite his humble background, he was able to acquire education up to the secondary school level and began working when tragedy struck.
One day, it was noticed that one of his legs was rotting and giving out an offensive smell and it had to be amputated following medical recommendations.
As if that wasn’t enough, his fingers suddenly began to peel off. His parents took him to the hospital for treatment and had to return him home owing to their financial incapabilities.
Speaking with the media, Dominico’s dad confirmed the story, adding that their son cannot even hold anything with his hands.
They made him the basket as they couldn’t afford to get him a wheelchair.
“It’s been 40 years now.
Afrimax said people donated massively 6 months after they initially shared his plight but the family still needs help.
