(Scroll down for video) A man has brought joy to a homeless woman when he surprised her with a birthday party.

The homeless woman has been sitting at the same spot for many years.

Emilio Aparicio got to know the 47-year-old homeless woman, Andrea Chaparro.

Aparicio is a photography student, who has focused much of his work on homeless people, living on the streets of Bogota, Colombia. While working on his school thesis he met Chaparro. Aparicio would often stop to chat with her and they became acquainted.

Recently, Aparicio arranged a special birthday surprise for Chaparro, for her 47th birthday. Aparicio bought a birthday hat, a necklace, donuts from Dunkin' Donuts and a birthday candle.

It is heartwarming to see the joy of the homeless woman, who was overwhelmed when Aparicio wished her a happy birthday.

The homeless woman got up and hugged Aparicio, as she screamed for joy. Everyone likes to be remembered on their birthday yet people tend to forget about homeless people.

This was an amazing gesture of compassion from the young man who went out of his way to make the homeless woman’s life a bit more joyful.
