A Nigerian man and Facebook user, Ukachukwu Igboamusi, has taken to the platform to narrate his encounter with a physically challenged mother of three who was taking her kids to school in Owerri, Imo State.
According to him, it is a big stress for the physically challenged woman to take her little children to school everyday and bring them back because of her condition. Mr Ukachukwu revealed why taxi drivers may be reluctant to help her as they may spend more time in taking her in with her wheel chair. He further solicited for support and help from government, individuals etc for the woman to take her children to school everyday.
Here is what he wrote…
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 child 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. Its 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 everyday and bring them back. I feel that any help rendered to this woman in taking her children to school everyday 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, cooperate bodies and individuals.
