It’s always great to get away from that bad news of the day and fill it’s spot with good samaritans like Celeste Ayala. She was the police officer on duty at Sister Maria Ludovica Children’s Hospital in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She noticed that there was a baby crying and nobody was doing anything about it.
The mother of the baby boy was in rough condition apparently and hospital staff was heard describing the baby as “smelly and dirty.” That didn’t stop Celeste though! She saw what she needed to do and asked the staff if she could hold and breastfeed the baby boy.
When she started, he instantly calmed down. He was just a hungry little guy!
Celeste spoke to local media outlets saying:
“I noticed that he was hungry, as he was putting his hand into his mouth, so I asked to hug him and breastfeed him.
It was a sad moment, it broke my soul seeing him like this, society should be sensitive to the issues affecting children, it cannot keep happening.”
Celeste went viral because of her friend, Marcos Heredia, who took the image and captioned it with:
“I want to make public this great gesture of love you made today for this little baby who you did not know, but for who you did not hesitate to act like a mother.
You did not care if he was dirty or smelly, which is what the hospital staff called him. Good job mate.”
It’s since been shared over 110K times!
Like this wasn’t enough, Celeste also volunteers as a firefighter in her spare time. It may be possible that she is actually Wonder Woman in disguise. The fire department that she volunteers with put this out on Facebook:
“We want to congratulate the voluntary firefighting cadet Celeste Ayala who yesterday in her job as police officer whilst she was on guard duty at the Hospital, breastfed a young child who arrived crying.
Actions like these fill us with pride and obligate us to redouble the effort, the work and the solidarity with our community.”
Social media was buzzing with praise for Celeste and her selfless acts of kindness. Some people said:
“You made me cry. you are a mom, with the biggest heart of the universe. you help a kid you are truly amazing. thanks, from québec canada.”
“How beautiful. Congratulations! Much admiration and a hug from Portugal.”
“She has only remained human, a beautiful quality that must be well rewarded by her Bosses. Honor and glory of the military woman.”
It’s safe to say that Celeste inspired people all over the world with her kindness.
What an amazing selfless act of love, now only of everyone in the world could be like this. I guess we should be grateful for one person at a time stepping up to the challenge, cheers to you Celeste!
