Manasseh to the rescue as he helps accident victim get a new leg and scholarship

Popular journalist Manasseh Azure is celebrating the health and good things coming the way of a young boy who was featured in a documentary, after the boy had a prosthetic leg installed for him by the Orthopaedic Training Centre in Nsawam.

In a Facebook post on March 21, 2019, Azure wrote: "Nine-year old Jeremiah Arthur, who was featured in my documentary last December, A Boy's Wish, has had that wish fulfilled.

His left leg was chopped off in Takoradi in 2016 when the driver of the car that knocked him against a wall kept her foot on the accelerator until that leg fell. The Orthopaedic Training Centre in Nsawam has fixed a prosthetic leg for him at no cost.

"I can walk, I can now climb the stairs and play a bit. I'm happy," says Jeremiah. Bayport Savings and Loans has also finalised the agreement that will grant him a scholarship from now up until he completes his tertiary education. Thanks to all who helped to put some joy back in the life of Jerry and his family."

It would that the journalist has used his clout to bring some shine into the poor young boy's life. That is obviously what most Ghanaians would like to see the very famous people do.

The responses to Azure's post captured the feeling of most Ghanaians.

Dora Abankwah-Danso wrote that "This is why I overlook all insults that many throw at you (Azure)"
