In this YouTube video, a young child sits shivering in the cold at a bus stop in Norway as strangers approach. The conversations aren’t spoken in English, but their actions require no interpretation. (Make sure to stick through the whole video, as certain participant’s actions aren’t shown until the end.)

The Huffington Post reports the boy was actually at the stop as part of an experiment to see how people would react to a person in need, and the effort is part of a larger campaign to help children displaced after conflict in Syria. The movement is the work of SOS Children’s Villages International.
