A Nigerian man whose Facebook username is Ukachukwu Igboamusi narrated his encounter with a physically impaired mom of three who was taking her children to school in Owerri, Imo State.
According to him, it is a very big stress for the physically impaired mother considering the age of her little children; to take them to school every day and bringing them back home, and he feels that any help rendered to this physically handicapped woman in taking her children to school every day would be highly appreciated. He further revealed that although no one had the intention of seeing him or herself in that challenging situation we can’t blame her, as she needs our help from all angles; Government, cooperate bodies and individuals.
His post read;
“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 twins. It 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 wheelchair 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 bring 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 needs our help both from the government angle, cooperate bodies and individuals.”
