In what could be described as a laudable development, a social media user has gained the attention of the online community after she came to the rescue of an Almajiri child and took him under her care.
According to a Twitter user identified as Sheikh Ibrahim Adam, the child surfaced online about a year ago, in a video in which he was spotted looking malnourished and also appeared to be suffering from diseases.
Among those who reacted to the video and offered to help him was a good Samaritan who he (Adam) identified as Lallai.
The lady out of her goodwill offered to fend for the boy and even went as far as adopting him as her son, and enrolling him in a school.
Sharing an old video of the boy and a recent picture showing him in better condition, Adam said:
"This Almajiri Child who suffered from hunger, malnutrition & diseases a year ago. The other picture, is the same #AlmajiriChild with Lallai the lady who picked him, washed him & adopted him as a child. She fed him well & enrolled him in school."

Social media users could not help but react to the video by showering prayers and kind words on Lallai for her benevolence.
