BENEFACTOR! Here is the touching story between CR7 and Indonesian young man who owe him a life

Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo will likely fly to Southeast Asia to attend the wedding of a person who owes him so much.

The 2004 Indonesian tsunami is one of the most horrific natural disasters in human history. At that time, little boy Martunis was one of the lucky survivors.

However, the disaster took the lives of more than 230,000 people, including both his mother and two siblings. Martunis was also found only after 21 days of ground running. It is worth noting that the boy was found wearing a jersey from the Portuguese football team.

As soon as being aware of the circumstances and the story of Martunis, the Portuguese Football Federation had donated £34,000 to help the boy repair his ruined house. Furthermore, striker Cristiano Ronaldo also visited Martunis in Aceh, Indonesia.

After that, the two continued to keep in touch, the striker then playing at Manchester United even helped Martunis to pay tuition and was willing to pay for Martunis to study in Europe. Martunis also respectfully calls CR7 as his life mentor and is grateful for Ronaldo's help.

Thanks to the generosity of the Portuguese captain, Martunis had a much better life: he now becomes a mature 22-year-old young man and prepares to get married with his beautiful fiance Sri Wahyuni.

To show deep gratitude to the benefactors, Martunis also invited Ronaldo to the wedding and it is possible that the former Real Madrid striker will arrange time to Indonesia to have fun with the young couple.
