A security video capturing a young Syrian employee closing a jewelry store in Dallas, Texas, has gone viral.

Noah, an asylum seeker from Syria, is currently living in Dallas with his family.

As Noah was preparing to close the store, a mother and her two young children entered, hoping to sell an heirloom given to her by her mother.

In tears, the woman explained to Noah that she needed to sell the jewelry piece to pay her bills and feed her children.

Noah examined the jewelry and asked if she sold it solely for money. When she replied “Yes,” he took some cash from his pocket and handed it to her along with the jewelry. He also gave her his phone number in case she needed further assistance.

Noah later told her that if she needed money again, she could bring the jewelry back to the store and he would buy it.

As a refugee from war-torn Syria, Noah understands better than most what it feels like to be helpless. His actions were driven by more than just a sense of humanity; he empathized deeply with the woman’s desperation.

“It doesn’t matter what religion you are, it doesn’t matter where you’re from,” Noah told CBS. “This is our humanity, everybody should do that.”
