He said in part:
“While I was going to the bank in the morning, I saw this young energetic guy hustling even with his disability, This is a pure example of turning disability into capability.
"I do not know him from Adam but his resilience moved me, If he can do this with one leg, he can definitely do more with two, even if he ends up not getting an artificial leg, at least a word of encouragement and token from this family can put smiles on his face, we can do something."
