A young Turkish man, Taskin Dasdan, has had his life changed for the better after he met a stranger called Charles Gorge Courtney.
Charles, every year, always stayed at the Korumar Hotel De Luxe and that was how the two met. Taskin is a bellboy at the hotel, Daily Mail reports.
His family was surprised
When the British hotel guest died this year, his family was surprised that a major part of his fortune was willed to the Turkish hotel worker and some parts to other hotel staff members.

While speaking to the media, the Turkish man said that Gorge treated them like family and even helped greatly with the education of his children.
A generous man
It should be noted that Taskin has been working at the hotel since 1990 and had known the wealthy man for years.
He revealed that the British guest always lodged at the hotel every year, adding that Charles was a very generous man.
Big enough to settle all worries
Though the amount he left for the Turkish man was not revealed, it was gathered that the fortune is big enough to take care of all Taskin’s needs without him having to work again in his life. Another report, however, pegged the sum £ (200,000 (GHC 1,666,878.95)
When the British man was alive, he was fond of staying in room 401 that it had to be named the ‘Charlie’s Room”.
A stranger helped a man's life
It all started when a good Samaritan, Michael Lynn, saw Donte walking one day and asked why he was doing so. He revealed that he walks over 8 miles to and from work to be able to put food on his family’s table.
Walking the miles to Buffalo Wild Wings where he works takes him more than two and half hours. No matter how hard his shift was, he repeated the same arduous trek back home.
