Social media users have come to the rescue of a struggling single mum.
A yet-to-be-identified Nigerian lady had taken to Twitter on Friday, March 19 to passionately narrate how she and he only daughter sleep on the bare floor and how she is tired of it.
The single mum @LayomiOlawunmi went on to express that sleeping on the floor leaves her daughter exposed to cold and prayed to God to provide for her need.
Her post got massive reactions from Nigerians. While some thought a potential fraudster was hiding behind the twitter account attempting to deceive unsuspecting members of the public, others sought ways to come to her aid.
@abiola_bg expressing reservations reacted:
"But you get phone to tweet? How much does a baby mattress cost again? Scammers oshi."
@Flame_dab offering to help said:
"Let me know how much a mattress of your choice will cost and send me an account number to send you the money."
"Format everywhere. Bringing a child into the world when you are not ready is irresponsible."
However, in a subsequent tweet she made on Saturday, March 20, the elated mother-of-one shared pictures of her daughter smiling for the camera as she lay on their new bed.
@LayomiOlawunmi appreciated all who helped in getting her the bed and prayed for them. She also wished all those who doubted her well.
"I will forever be grateful to you all, God bless you all,am so happy that my baby girl is excited with the new bed, she's just so excited, God bless you all, everything u lay your hands on shall continue to prosper, and to those saying it's scam, it's well with you all."
