Our world is marred with gross inequality to the extent that, not everyone can have an affluent life. However there are rare circumstances where one come across a good samaritan, who by virtue of empathy provides them with needed help to improve their lives. That was the case of Mary Daniels, a street hawker in Lagos, Nigeria.
Not long ago, a picture went viral about a young female amputee, selling water on the streets of Lagos. The picture touched so many hearts considering how a disabled female like her does such a difficult job instead of begging or staying at home. Her industrious gesture saw some affluent personalities including Nigerian footballer, Victor Osimhen come to her aid to help Mary financially. Nigerian politician, Ogwumba Uche Nwoso surprised Mary with 1 million naira, which is a little above Ghs15k to embark on a much lucrative business.
Today Mary Daniels, who is a single mother celebrates her 27th birthday and hopefully, she can smile without worries as she takes photos to commemorate her new age and grace.
