Opinions are divided
One of the commentators on Twitter confirmed that Hassan’s case proves that hygiene and fitness are not dependent on attending a party, meeting an official, or even an official time. Cups and a warmer with tea inside.
Comments poured in on the picture of the elegant little boy, divided between a supporter of him, and people pleading to buy from him, and between angry about the situation of children in Iraq, especially since he who was of a good age should be on school benches and not on the streets.

It is noteworthy that Iraq is living in a difficult economic situation, as recent statistics showed that the highest poverty rates are concentrated in 4 governorates in the south and east of the country.
While unemployment is generally high among young people in a country considered among the richest in oil, some armed parties and militias dominate and share influence and positions in official institutions, and state benefits.
