A Nigerian nurse is the subject of praise and admiration after it emerged that apart from her occupation as a health worker during the day, the nurse is also a carpenter by night.
Apparently, Beth Aghahowa's day nursing job does not pay her sufficiently enough to cater for her needs. Therefore, Beth thought it best to put her energy into her hobby of carpentry and make money out of it.
Posting some photos of herself making and painting some beds in her carpentry workshop, Beth indicated that she is hardly idle, putting in the work to earn something during her spare time.
In her Facebook post, Beth wrote: “When I'm not eating cake or talking on air about feminism or being a nurse or sewing bedding or designing logos and flyers, I build furniture. Have you patronize me yet?"
Earlier, a Ghanaian nurse, Margaret Afriyie, is being celebrated for handling a job excellently even though she is the only attendant at a Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHIPS) compound in the Ashanti region.
YEN.com.gh sighted the special praise for Afriyie on Facebook thanks to a user who singled out the nurse for excelling in the poorly-staffed establishment.
Afriyie is apparently the only midwife at the CHIPS compound and has delivered about seven babies so far.
With the use of her own money, the nurse hires a motorcycle and goes out to town administering medicine and other services.
In addition to her having no helping hand, Afriyie reportedly has to connect electricity to the CHIPS compound, also from her own pocket.
Coupled with all of this, Afriyie has decided to go into farming, perhaps to supplement her income and give herself a chance at a settled life in the town.
