"He narrated that his Oga had brought him and few other guys from Enugu on a contract to tile a hotel at ph road and he (the Oga) left them there since two days without pocket money to feed. No one had seen him and they’ve been working.
"He had ulcer and couldn’t bare the pain so he started walking around to look for day job to get small money to eat and He fainted on the road. He said he doesn’t know anybody or anywhere in owerri."
The Imo couple got him malt and milk and a woman who lives close by gave him food.
In addition, they gave him personal necessaries while people around contributed N4k for him.
Why Anoda Mirakle and her husband helped Akachukwu
When Legit.ng contacted Mirakle to enquire what inspired her and her husband to render help to Akachukwu, she implied that being kind is their way of life.
"My husband happens to be a kind of person that can give his last to anyone who needs it more. He’s kind to a fault. And it surprises me more because we don’t even have too much. Sometimes we go a day or two without food but God being so kind, always provides for our kids. We have two boys now."
She narrated an incident that happened in 2021 which changed their lives forever.
"I remember, last year June when we were involved in a fatal car accident at Ihiala, Anambra state, badly bruised lost consciousness and lots of blood, IT WAS TOTAL STRANGERS WHO CAME TO PULL US OUT OF THE BUS, SAVED MY SON FROM UNDER THE BUS WHERE HE FELL, AND RUSHED US TO THE NEAREST HOSPITAL.

"IF THOSE STRANGERS HAD OVERLOOKED US AND MINDED THEIR BUSINESS, MY FIRST SON, MYSELF AND MY HUSBAND MYSELF WOULD HAVE BEEN ONE YEAR IN THE GRAVE BY NOW.
"When we drove past that guy, my husband said these exact words “chai! This is someone’s son, brother and friend. If you check now, it will just be food that is his problem” ... as if he knew."
Continuing, she said:
"We dropped my boy at school and we agreed to just check at least to confirm. People were walking and driving through that same road. He said if we call out to Him and he doesn’t answer, we’ll just go. Because we wouldn’t want to be held responsible for something we know nothing about.
"So we came back and I noticed he was shivering as if convulsion pinned him there.
"The first thing that came to my mind was malt and milk. It gives some kind of strength. My mom always administered it whenever any of us had grown weak over an illness.

"It could have been me or my husband on that ground or even any of my sibling.. nobody is better than the other. Everyone deserves at least a little bit of love and care.
"Tomorrow is one thing I’m scared of. Nobody knows it! He might just be the one to help any of my kids tomorrow, not know we lended a helping hand to him sometime. Nobody knows."

"You could have helped him without the video and photos, God would still bless you."
Faith Chiamaka Hilary said:
"God bless you all. Indeed people are passing through a lot. With what I have been from 18th of these month till date. I told myself, I must help people ( especially hunger related issues) there's hunger in the land. And if God does not help a man no man would no matter the circle built. What if you and hubby didn't drive back to check up on him. Na only God go bless everyone. It's not by hustle oooo. It's well."

Young man cooks food and gives to beggars
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a young man had cooked food and shared them to beggars on the street.
What got people's attention more was not just the food but that the giver placed the sum of N200 note on each plate of meal to show that he does not only want to feed them but is also interested in enriching their pockets.
The first photo he shared has him preparing the meal. In the last frame, the Good Samaritan took the food out, handing each to street beggars.
