UK-based Ghanaian, Derrick Evans, has offered a helping hand to a physically-challenged Ghanaian who returned from Libya a few weeks ago.
Abu ,who left the shores of Ghana years ago to explore job opportunities in Libya, returned home with nothing.
He narrated the horrific experience and physical torture he went through in Libya, which has left him with a burnt face and hands.
Reports say Abu returned to Ghana without a dime, with his own family unable to recognize him due to his new physical deformity.
The Libya returnee who narrated his heartbreaking story to family and friends, went viral on various social media platforms as he appealed for support from individuals to undergo surgery.
However, Abu’s desperate appeals have touched the heart of Derrick Evans, after he chanced upon photos of him on Facebook.
The young Ghanaian has offered a generous cash donation to Abu, to undergo a successful plastic surgery.
Derrick has also promised to continue his financial support to Abu until he fully recovers and gets back on his feet.
This is not the first time Derrick is reaching out to the poor, vulnerable groups and under-privileged people in the Ghanaian society.
According to Derrick, he is inspired to provide help and support to vulnerable groups and individuals due to the suffering he went through in UK before succeeding.
Derrick say due to his own past experience, he has nurtured the passion of giving to others, and to help poor people succeed in life.
As part of Derrick’s Given and Charity Projects, he has delivered many support packages running into thousands of pounds to individuals and bodies, including Osu Children’s home.
He also makes time out of his business schedule to visit care homes and provide financial packages to support vulnerable children whenever in Ghana.
