After suffering burns all over his body, ten-year-old Joaquin Nahuel from Argentina decided to start making and selling cakes, pies, and even cupcakes to save enough money to pay for his skin reconstruction surgery. Joaquín’s story became known a few weeks ago on Instagram when the boy posted a post about his story and some of his work that quickly went viral as people wanted to show their support. The mother of the boy, named Raquel said the boy needed four skin expanders for a facial reconstruction, which cost $500 each and only involved the face. The incident, which left him with 25% of his body burned and scars evident, happened three years ago when Nahuel and a cousin sprayed alcohol on embers, injuring them all. In the end, the worst injuries fell on Joaquín’s arms, neck, and face. undefined Joaquín is very inspired when it comes to cooking, even though he still goes to school. His biggest source of inspiration is his grandfather, who taught him how to bake and even cakes. He also cooks and distributes muffins, donuts, and mini-cakes, which he sells as extras to earn more money for her surgeries. However, a week ago he managed to deliver a cake to the players of Boca Juniors (a football team in Argentina), and the photo was shared on Twitter with this exact caption: “Hope this helped you rained and if not, I promise you the next one will be better.”
