Woman’s heartbreak for mum and young son after hearing him beg for apples she can’t afford

A WOMAN has shared the heartbreaking conversation she overheard while in a supermarket, after a little boy begged his mum for apples which she just couldn’t afford. 

The woman, called Emi, explained she was out grabbing food when she witnessed the exchange between the mum and her young son. 

It struck a chord with Emi, after noting the lad didn’t ask for games or sweets, but simply wanted a piece of fruit.

But his mum had to deny the request, as she tragically told them they couldn’t afford the luxury item after her other half lost his job. 

Recalling the shopping trip, Emi shared a clip to TikTok, while sat in her car outside the supermarket, and said: “How can this be happening to families in the UK? 

“A little boy asked for Apples & mum couldn’t afford them.”

She was so moved by the conversation, Emi went and bought the family a bag of apples, and waited to surprise them outside the supermarket. 

Emi said: “So guys, I just need to share something with you.

"I live in the UK and I was just in the supermarket and there was a little boy in there asking his mum for apples – not games consoles, books, crisps or biscuits, apples.

"She said, 'I'm sorry son, but we can't afford them. Your dad has lost his job and we just can't afford it'.”

The little boy calmly accepted it, and the pair went on with their shopping, although Emi says the mum appeared flustered. 

"He didn't kick up a fuss or anything, I could tell this mum was really embarrassed, but they just went on their way,” she added. 

Emi decided to take matters into her own hands, as she continued: "I picked up some pink lady apples and I went to the cash desk and I got a £30 gift card and when they came out I gave the little boy the apples and gave the mum the gift card.

"She burst into tears she was so grateful. She said 'Thank you so much. If it wasn't for Covid, I'd give you a hug right now.'

"And I said, 'Good things happen to good people' and you know what the little boy said? He goes 'I prayed for apples this morning'.

"That's sad. I live in the UK. This isn't a Third World country. This is so sad, it breaks my heart."

More than 200,000 people have watched the video, as they were moved by Emi’s selfless actions.

One person commented: "'I prayed for apples''. Bless his little heart."

Another wrote: "OMG! This actually made me cry – good things happen to good people – you've got a love coming your way."

This person said: "You're a beautiful person."

While another thought: "Omg that's so sad… bless you for doing such a kind thing!"
