Cristiano Ronaldo to meet Beirut bombing victim Haidar Moustafa after Twitter hashtag went viral

Last week in Lebanon two suicide bombers blew themselves up in Beirut.

The incident killed more than 40 people while 200 people were injured in the terror attack.

Following that horrific incident, the story of one young boy, Haidar Moustafa, began picking up attention on social media.

Rana Harbi (@RanaHarbi), who writes in her Twitter bio that she’s a “proud Lebanese, reporter, pro-resistance, allergic to both Islamists and Islamophobes”, began sharing a photo of Haidar in hospital, wearing a Real Madrid shirt.

According to reports which spread globally, three-year-old Haidar lost both parents in the attack, and Rana Harbi made an online plea so that Haidar could meet Cristiano Ronaldo.

In the following days, the hashtag #CristianoMeetHaidar began picking up speed on the social network, and today Rana Harbi revealed that the Haidar’s story had reached the Real Madrid star, and a meeting is being scheduled.
