Amazing things keep happening to Kaosarat, the blue-eyed girl, and her family as people have not stopped stretching hands of help to them.
Toyin Saraki, the wife of the former Senate president, Bukola Saraki, has helped them through her foundation called the Wellbeing Foundation Africa.
In a detailed account on her site, the advocate explained the reasons why she decided to intervene in their matter.
She said that she was most struck by their condition because Riskiat’s (the mother) story reflects the typical story of many women in Nigeria.
Toyin said that the mother could not sit for her final examinations in secondary school because of a lack of funds and had to work in a shop where she met her husband, Abdulwasiu.
She added what really broke the family apart was when their child named Taiwo died because of the father’s financial incapacity to provide money for his upkeep.
During their turbulence, the mother had to sell her medicine shop to raise funds for the family’s welfare during the lockdown time.
The advocate said she donated towards the family so that she could economically empower their mother as she advised institutions to always put people first in their programmes.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the wife of Kwara state governor, Olufolake Abdulrasaq, came to the rescue of Kaosarat, her sister and mom, who all have blue eyes.
Following the viral news about the family who was abandoned by their father because of the eyes' colour, the First Lady of the state said she has contacted them through her NGO called Ajike People Support Centre.

Olufolake did not only stop at offering to help them, she added that she would also work on "possibly" reuniting the woman with her husband.
She tweeted: "The First Lady of Kwara State has been in touch with the family through the @Ajike_Centre.
We're also doing everything to support Mrs Risikat and her children and possibly unite the wife and the children with her husband."
