Captain Smart who heard the story of the 44years old lady and invited her to the studios of Adom FM and she shared her sad story to the listeners.
According to Laila, she was not born with blindness but rather got blind at the age of 11and it was an eye infection which is known in local parlance as “Apolo” which got her blind. An unknown man broke into her kiosk and raped her which resulted in her pregnancy and not only that was also revealed that she has been infected with HIV as a result of the rape.
Captain Smart after the sad story of the lady made a campaign to raise funds to take care of Laila. People were touched with her sad story and donated heavily for her. Smart used the money raised to get her a befitting place to live and made life comfortable enough for her and again made sure Laila’s daughter got into a nursing training school to fulfill her dream of becoming a nurse.
Through what Smart did, Laila has named her newborn son, Kwame after Captain Smart and as she present the child to Smart she revealed that she nearly gave up in life; “I considered taking my life because all hope was lost but when Adom FM came in, everything changed for the better,”.
She then used the opportunity to thank God, Captain Smart, Adom FM and everyone who helped in the donation when she was in need.
We want to hear from you all.
