Bad Bunny fulfilled the dream of a young girl who survived the elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. In the massacre, 19 children and two teachers were killed. Twenty-two other children were wounded, including 10-year-old Mayah Zamora.

Mayah became one of the most well-known survivors of the shooting since she was the last of the victims to be released from University Hospital in San Antonio. 

Upon her release from the hospital, Mayah received a surprise from the Puerto Rican singer.

The girl was trending on social media in recent weeks after being a guest of honor at one of Bad Bunny's concerts, when he passed through Texas as part of his World Hottest Tour earlier this month, according to El Tiempo.

Upon learning about the massacre at Robb Elementary School, Bad Bunny wanted to give something special to Zamora. He donated a large amount of money since several foundations were looking for funds to buy her a new house. The girl lives very close to the home of the perpetrator of the crime and was traumatized after the incident.

Through the Correa Family Foundation, created by Puerto Rican Carlos A. Correa, Mayah and Bad Bunny met in person. The charity organization thanked the performer for sharing his time with the minor, reiterating that it was an incredible experience for her because she is a fan of his music.

"Thank you so much to @badbunnypr for welcoming our Hero of the Month, Mayah Zamora, to your concert and for making sure she had a beautiful and fun night dancing with her family!" the foundation posted on its Instagram account.

Bad Bunny took some pictures with Mayah and gave her clothing and other items that were signed by him.

The shooting at the Uvalde Elementary School in Texas took place on May 24, 2022, when several children lost their lives after a shooter, identified as Salvador Rolando Ramos, fired several rounds inside the school.
