However, Daily Voice reported that the doting father was so moved by the need in his community, that he decided to use the N1.4m to start a feeding scheme instead.
The father of 10 works at a primary school in Cape Town and wondered how the needy children were coping with the school closure.

The best part is that his 26-year old daughter Miengah not only supported his proposal but has even donated to the cause.
Abrahams added, “My family supported me from the first day I announced this and they are the ones who help prepare the daily meals.”
Legit.ng learnt that the feeding scheme has been operating since the inception of the lockdown and has been serving 500 meals per day.
