PHOTOS, VIDEO: Nigerian philanthropist gives N5000 each to 7 boys he spotted selling firewood


A kind-hearted Nigerian, Akinaka Richard, has shown a random act of kindness to less-privileged children he spotted hawking firewood. 

Mr Richard was riding his G-wagon when he spotted the 7 young boys fetching firewood to sell. He decided to give them N5,000 each to buy Christmas clothes ahead of the festivity.






He posted the video on his Facebook page with the caption: “I came across this kids this afternoon who reminded me of how the anxiety of not having something new to wear in the festive period would push me to do similar things to raise money just to get something new for the season. It gave me an opportunity to reflect on where God has brought me from but importantly it was an opportunity to appreciate the depth of their struggles..”
