Mario Ejis, aged 54, worked as a caretaker at the Rotterdam’s Diergaarde Blijdorp zoo, Netherlands, for the past 25 years. He was very dedicated to
his job and he did his best to care for the animals and to make them feel loved and safe. Without a doubt, the animals too liked him a lot and always welcomed him warmly. However, unfortunately, Ejis was diagnosed with incurable cancer. With time, he couldn’t even speak properly. This illness prevented him from being with the animals, and he could only lie down and await his death.
Even in this difficult, kind people were there to make him smile. Ambulance Wish Foundation, a charity organization, organized a wonderful journey to the zoo. Therefore, Ejis could spend a day with his beloved animals. During this, something miraculous happened. One of the kindhearted giraffes could sense that Ejis wasn’t feeling well, so it approached him lovingly and gave him a kiss. This for sure meant the world for Ejis.
