Pictures of a homeless boy doing his homework on the pavement outside a McDonald's, to take advantage of the light at night, have gone viral.The youngster is seen sitting at a tiny wooden bench writing or drawing in a book as the glow from the restaurant illuminates the space around him.The boy was tracked down by the news network who found out his name is Daniel Cabrera. ABS-CBN discovered the Cabrera family has had no permanent home since their house was destroyed by fire. Daniel is a grade three student who sets himself up under the lights of the fast food chain branch every night, as it provides the only stable light source near his temporary home. The youngster told the network that despite his family's current situation, he is determined to finish his studies to be able to help them.
