A 67-year-old woman called Gloria has risen 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 wastes seeped to her front door, making her living condition 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.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that to survive the economic hardship that the ongoing lockdown is causing, a woman named Peninah Bahti Kitsao living in Mombasa, Kenya, cooked stones for her children.

Before the coronavirus lockdown, the woman worked as a local laundrywoman. Now that restriction is in play, her customer base has drastically dwindled.

Peninah said that she always hoped they would fall asleep as they wait on end for the meal (stones) to get cooked.

The widow said she could not believe people would come to her rescue the way they did, calling everything a big miracle.

She said that she had to resort to that tactic because she had nothing. The widow, however, said that the children later knew that they were being lied to.

"They started telling me that they knew I was lying to them, but I could do nothing because I had nothing,” she said.
