- A young boy is seeking support to aid his return to school so he can fulfill his dream of improving the standard of living of his family
- Innocent Nyasha Gaisa was said to have been involved in an accident with a donkey that made him lose the use of his legs
- Now, his neck and waist are affected as the injury he suffered deteriorated
Things have really fallen apart for a young lad since his unfortunate encounter with an animal in 2013.
The boy named Innocent Nyasha Gaisa, according to Concord Khutso, reportedly had an accident with a donkey back in 2013 on his way home that altered the whole course of his life.
In his account, he was said to have felt fine after the accident but suddenly felt pains that warranted him getting home with the aid of a stick.
But, as days turned into weeks the supposed strong pain worsened. He was said to have quit school as he couldn't use his legs anymore.
His family were said to have visited hospitals in South Africa to find cure to the situation but all proved abortive.
Innocent said x-rays and tests carried out on him certified him okay but he still wasn't able to use his two legs.
Innocent's family have visited religious centres too but got no solution.
The lad situation now is such that he can't twist his neck nor bend his waist. He is seeking the support of well-meaning individuals to save him.
"Even now I'm still in pain .
"Both my legs ,I can't bend my waist and I can't twist my neck .
"Am asking for help from members of the South African community to assist me
"My wish is to go back to school since I always had a wish to change the standard of leaving of my family," an excerpt from the Facebook post reads.
The post got many emotional and stirred wellness messages.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian man had shared what happened when a pastor tried to make him walk.
Debola Daniel is a Nigerian with some real experiences as well. Despite his disability on both feet, he is doing well for himself as a banker and is also championing a cause to end the stigma attached to persons with disability.
Though it is still unknown how he came to lose the use of his legs or when it occurred, Deola has refused allowing his physical challenges relegate him to the background of things.
