From Murtaza to Messi and back!
The story of a little Afghan boy with a homemade plastic-bag jersey of his idol Messi, captured hearts and imaginations. It spread like wildfire across social media resulting in a signed jersey by Messi being presented to him. Arrangements are being made for the two to meet in person. Perhaps this unlikely connection will lead to deeper and more transformative change.
