It is no longer news that some physically challenged people are found begging on the streets before they can feed while some still try to make a living for themselves.
The picture of a physically challenged woman has gone viral on social media. Despite her condition, this woman was seen by the roadside in her wheelchair taking her three children to school.
One Ukachukwu Igboamusi on Wednesday, March 21, took to his Facebook profile to share the picture of this woman with her children. He did not mock her but begged for the government, private organizations and individuals to make things easy for her in taking her children to school.
His post reads: “I stood for about 10 minutes this morning watching this woman and her three kids at government house round about trying to board a taxi going to Owerri city school. One of the children hid at her back in this picture was trying to push her. The one that hid at her back and the one wearing blue are twin. It’s wasn't easy for her to get a taxi due to her conditions. The taxi drivers may feel that it would be waste of time going to help her in, take her wheel chair into the booth before continuing their journey. To me, it would be a very big stress for this woman considering the age of her little children, taking them to school every day and bringing them back. I feel that any help rendered to this woman in taking her children to school every day would be highly appreciated. No one had the intention of seeing his or herself in this situation but we can't blame her. She need our help both from the government angle, corporate bodies and individuals.”
