The power of social media has been proved once more as Twitter users banded together to help a young boy who wrote a letter describing his family’s financial situation and shared it on Twitter.
In his letter, the young boy indicated that he is the third of five children, with his father working as a trotro driver and his mother as a stay-at-home mother.
He said that his father had lost his job due to a problem with his car’s engine, and that they were now unable to purchase even the most basic essentials.
As a result, he pleaded with Ghanaians to come to his family’s rescue in their hour of need.
And he was not disappointed, as his call for help was duly heard, and netizens quickly rallied around the child, raising a sizable sum of GHC900 to be delivered to the 10-year-old and his family.
