Kindhearted man helps one-legged lady who was spotted hawking water energetically
A kindhearted Nigerian man, Ibitoye Ayodele has provided some assistance for a lady with one leg who did not allow her disability to deter her from making something of her life.
He had gone out to the market and spotted the one-legged lady simply identified as Mary hawking bottled and sachet water in the Oshodi area of Lagos and the zeal with which she sold her products caught Ibitoye’s attention.
According to the young man, he was shocked as Mary crossed the road and climbed pavements with the load on her head as she hawked.
Ibitoye said he was moved by her action and decided to go back to locate her. He added that he was able to give her some money for her business and would still give her more.
The lady was said to have survived an accident in 2006 that killed everyone in the bus, including her parents.
Mary who dropped out of secondary school in JSS3, indicated interest in going back to school and revealed that she is in need of shelter.
A crowdfunding account has been opened for Mary, who is a single mother. The aim is to raise N5,000,000 for the young lady.
I got discouraged to buy what I wanted to buy again. And I went in search of her.
After asking of her from people around, I got her number, called her, and discussed with her. pic.twitter.com/JksmednW7L
