- A video capturing the moment a boy with a disability arrived in an urban area and interacted with people has gone viral
- Before now, the lad had resided in forests and fed on grasses
- He was showered with love even though many couldn't help but stare
A boy with a disability finally got to meet humans and see the urban area in a heartwarming video that recently made the rounds on social media.
The narrator in the video shared on Instagram by @kingtundeednut stated that the lad had before now resided in forests and fed on grasses as he was greatly stigmatized by adults and children from his community.
His mother who wasn't well-to-do was his only companion as she shouldered all the responsibilities of looking after him despite his condition.
Hope came for him as a humanitarian group stepped in. In the clip, city dwellers expressed surprise as they welcomed and interacted with him.
He got to sleep in a real bed, eat good meals and was enrolled in a school for the disabled.
The video got many emotional as they praised his mum for standing by him.
See some reactions below:
"One thing I learnt from this video is that no matter how people saw this boy, his mother NEVER gave up on him. God bless all the mothers around the world."
"His mum loves him so much... I'm glad that good samaritan's could reach out to him."
"Wow !!! Finally he allowed people come close to him. I am sincerely happy to see him relate like this. The first time I saw his video, the people at his village made him feel bad for his look and the mother was sad. But grateful to God he is at least moving around people."
Meanwhile, we previously reported about a 26-year-old man without hands who is an award-winning filmmaker.
The young man was born with a birth defect called limb hypoplasia which affected the development of the limbs and left him with no hands and tiny legs.
Without allowing this to hold him back, Thesun.co.uk reported that Isaac started vlogging and filming himself playing games with his feet which amazed many social media users.
His online presence grew and now, the 26-year-old is recognised as one of the best filmmakers in London as he has won awards for his hard work and exploits.
