- Brigid Chichi was in a supermarket to window shop since she had no money to do proper shopping because she is yet to receive her 8-month salary
- A patient whom she could hardly remember met her in the store and quickly rushed to thank her for the care she had received
- The woman offered to do her shopping of ₵900 in appreciation of the kindness the nurse had shown her
- She also asked Chichi to always reach out in case she needs to do any shopping in the future saying she would take care of it
Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Brigit Chichi could never be more proud of being a nurse after a patient she once took care of offered to do her monthly shopping after running into her in a local supermarket.
Chichi was in the retailer, but not to buy as many of us do in the stores, but to window shop since she was broke as she has not received her salary for the past eight months.
Speaking in an interview, the lady said she worked in a county hospital currently after working in Kisumu Specialist where she had attended to the lady.
"I was just window shopping, thinking of what to buy after I hopefully getting my salary soon then I heard someone shouting 'sister wa specialist! sister wa specialist!' at first I did not know she was talking to me.
"But she came to me and thanked me for taking of her when I was a nurse at Kisumu Specialist. She looked at my small trolley which only had spaggeti and diapers and told me to put it down and get a bigger trolley," Chichi narrated.
The woman, who the nurse even forgot to ask her name, asked her to pick anything she wants in the supermarket.
She was both confused and happy and began taking items from the shelves hesitantly not to surpass her former patient's budget.
"She noticed I was picking the things timidly and asked me to pick everything at its maximum capacity without fear, and she spent 15k on me," the nurse said.
Miracles are not just the humongous events that happened in the ancient biblical times but Chichi described today's happening as a miracle since everything she was desiring while window shopping was now in her trolley ready to go home with her.
"I seriously could not believe it. Whoever said tenda wema nenda zako ( do good and just go your way) was absolutely right. Some acts of kindness just come back to you in huge proportions," she said.
And, it gets better. The woman left the nurse a card and asked her to call in the future should she want to go shopping again.
"I took care of her, I even forgot her name, which I will surely check in the hospital records, but I am glad she appreciated my work," an excited Chichi said.
As some are saving money for others, some others are saving lives. Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that People like Nigerian Dr Auwal Abubakar deserve to be featured on a hall of fame for saving lives and achieving an unprecedented feat in the medical field.
Abubakar is the chief medical director of Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Yola in Adamawa state. The erudite scholar and surgeon has in the past operated several cases of conjoined twins successfully and brought joy to families who otherwise had no hope.
