A boy found wandering on the street of Kwesimintsim is receiving treatment at the Kwesimintsim Hospital in Takoradi in the Western Region of Ghana.
The youngster, who doctors confirmed has a mental issue, could not walk on his feet when he was discovered.
Maame Efua Purest, a Good Samaritan, found the boy alone on the street and garnered support to transport him to the hospital by a truck.

Nana Tea had earlier posted visuals of the youngster on the truck to the hospital. In the subsequent post, the internet influencer revealed that an anonymous person in the US sent him GH¢1,000 and another sent him GH¢150 for the boy's treatment.
Sending the donated funds
Nana Tea recounted that he sent the amount he received to Maame Efua Purest who used part of the amount to purchase provisions and other items for the boy.
''I gave it to Maame Efua Purest to get a few items like diapers, a bucket, clothes, etc for now and do the down payment, which she did,'' he said.

Nana Tea released heartwarming pictures of the boy surrounded by the items at Kwesimintsim Hospital on his Facebook page.
In a phone interview with YEN.com.gh on Sunday, Maame Efua Purest, the lady who rescued the boy said when she visited the boy's father's house at Busua, the boy's uncle told her the boy had been rejected by his mother due to his condition.
"I went to see his family, his uncle by name Nana Ayensua revealed that his father lives in Senegal, but his mother is in Ghana, half Assini.
"I was told his Ghanaian mother abandoned him; she does not want to have anything to do with the boy."
Maame Efua Purest disclosed that the boy had been discharged and no one knows where he is now because ''social welfare'' doesn't want to reveal his whereabouts to anyone.
