Gbolahan and Olorunfunmi
Most times when you go on Nigerians' social media platforms (facebook, twitter and instagram), only probably 40% times (or lesser) do you find people using their accounts for lofty deeds. Sixty per cent (or more) of the time, peeps are up posting and chatting about trivial and vain things.

Therefore, when I came across this inspiring post during my latest sojourn through Cyberland, I couldn't help but contribute my bit by blogging about it. 

 The story is a Facebook post by a young Nigerian woman, Olorunfunmi Adebajo, who is helping a homeless, middle-aged man, Gbolahan, who has been labelled as a social degenerate, clean up. Now you may be thinking the lady in question is perhaps some very wealthy woman living in V.I or Lekki. Well let me dissapoint you; you are wrong! 

According to the Facebook post (that has now gone viral), Olorunfunmi explained that Gbolahan was a "chronic drunk" who sleeps in kekes (commercial tricycles) parked on the street she stays and "his case was worse than a mad man". She talked with him after "God laid it in her heart to do so" and surprisingly, he listened.

 Now, Olorunfunmi has taken over his feeding by paying a nearby buka to have him fed twice a day, bought him a sponge, soap and toothpaste, checks on him every morning and evening, drives him to church in her car, gave him some place to sleep and something to do, and also, handed him over to someone else to teach him personal hygiene and a bit of social skills.

Her effort has already yielded results as "Gbolahan has now been clean for three weeks, converses coherently and does not stagger anymore" to the amazement of the occupants of their street (Ire-Akari road).

Olorunfunmi used the post which was written on her birthday to solicit for more support and help for Gbolahan's complete rehabilitation.

I was sincerely touched by this story and I'm glad we still have people like Olorunfunmi in Nigeria. People, who even out of the little they have, reach out and help other people even though they are not stinkingly rich themselves. 

So, dear blackberrybabes.com reader, if there's any way you can help Gbolahan, please do. Also, remember there are many Gbolahans out there. You can take a leaf from Olorunfunmi and reach out. In the words of Alicia Keys; "We are here for one another".
