A father got creative to fix his daughter’s limited natural ability to walk. According to Richard DiPilla, the CEO of Global Goodwill Ambassadors, the father created a prosthetic to replace her amputated limb.
Richard said the father, who also happens to be his friend, did that so that he and his daughter could walk together.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the artificial leg was created from aluminium material. In one of the pictures shared on LinkedIn, the girl could be seen with a bright smile as she wears the prosthetic.

Meanwhile, it was earlier reported that a 67-year-old woman called Gloria rose above her challenges.
The woman's horrible condition was noticed by an organisation called Age Nigeria Foundation when she called into their live radio programme to make a contribution.
Before the foundation came to her rescue, Gloria was alone in her makeshift house made of planks on land close to a big refuse dump in Sangotedo, behind Eti Osa LCDA Secretariat.
Most times, the waste seeped to her front door, making her living conditions very terrible. With the initial help of her local government, the invasion stopped.
Days after the NGO visited her, a good Samaritan donated a wheelchair to her to help her mobility. During the presentation of the gift, the old woman was very grateful and she expressed her happiness.
Before the help came her way, 67-year-old Gloria only relied on a walking aid to move around her house.
