- This is not the first act of kindness by the proud man, he has been impacting lives positively in recent times
A physically challenged man identified as Michael Showunmi has wowed people on social media after paying the school fees of three siblings whose parents have financial challenges.
Making the disclosure through his foundation on LinkedIn, Showunmi said the siblings are identified as Taiwo, Kehinde and Memunat Oshokoya.
According to the siblings, things are difficult for them because their mum was diagnosed with cancer.
The statement read:
"While we moved around doing our survey in helping 100 children back to school, I was led to a school. After my discussion with the principal, I met 3 siblings (Taiwo, Kehinde and Memunat Oshokoya) who haven’t paid their school fees.
"They shared with me how their Mum was diagnosed with cancer and how things have been very difficult. Their father lost his job as well."
The kids' father was surprised
According to Showunmi, the school principal called the kids' dad on phone and he rushed down to the school thinking that his children did something bad.
He was, however, surprised when he was told that Raising Star Africa, a nonprofit organisation, was willing to pay the children's school fees.
In Showunmi's words:
"He went dumbfounded, shedding tears for so long. I told the eldest to pat him. The boy was so happy he never stopped prostrating. I advised them to pay the kindness forward.
"The interesting part is..the principal called me the next day that she was moved by the kindness, that she gave their Father part of the school fees to go stock the home with foodstuffs for his family.. I was surprised!. #Kindness is infectious."
Mom who hawked now has three graduates
Looking at recent stories regarding education, Briefly News reported that a proud son with the handle @FasipeTobi has shared a very emotional story of how his mother made a big sacrifice to sponsor them in school.
In a post on Sunday, May 23, the young man said that he was really moved to tears while narrating how his mum sold hot tea and homemade yoghurt on Lagos street to fund her children's education.
As if that was not enough, the superwoman also used proceeds from the business to take care of her ailing husband, who was blind.
The young man stated that their story is a motivational one as his younger brother now works with Google while he is under the employment of PayStack.
