Syrian Refugee Comes To The Aid Of A Canadian Bride When Zippper Malfunctioned On Her Wedding Day
It is true that in life, no matter how organized we are, or how well we plan, the unexpected still happens. Yet, we can still find positivity, value, and fulfillment during the most dreary setbacks. A bride's nightmare scenario happened during Jo Du’s wedding ceremony in Ontario, Canada, when the zipper to her beautiful wedding gown malfunctioned an hour to her wedding. The teeth had separated and the zipper wouldn't go back together.
Her bridesmaids tried all they could to save the situation but to no avail. Realizing that they were running out of time, Lindsey Coulter, the wedding photographer, suggested that they go borrow a poker from their neighbor to fix the zipper.
However, something better laid in wait. The neighbor, David Hobson, was hosting a family of Syrian refugees who had arrived from Aleppo only four days earlier.
The father, Ibrahim Hali Dudu, was a tailor who has been in the profession for 30 years.
With the bridesmaids still struggling with the dress, David Hobson, Ibrahim Dudu, and his son came to the rescue with a sewing kit. Interestingly, Dudu could not speak a word of English so communication was done through the help of an internet translator and gestures.
The master tailor worked on the gown with such dexterity that within minutes the bride’s dress was amended. A hero and a savior! His kind deed left the bride and everyone in the room excited and grateful.
Dudu's action proved that kindness knows no bounds and needs no word. Responding to a Canadian Television Network using a translator, Dudu said he was more than happy to get to work. He revealed that he loves to help people and it comes from his heart.
His story moved the internet after Coulter made a post about it on her facebook page.The story had a whopping number of 10,000 shares and 20,000 likes with several heartwarming comments.
Thanks to the master tailor. Jo and her groom proceeded with their nuptials without delay and with her gown intact. Kindness played a vital role in this happy ending!
