Oswald’s our day letter drew a lot of attention nationwide, along with wholesome conversations about children in deprived areas. A trending photo of a young boy having fufu as his Our-Day meal in a rural school emerged from these conversations. After the picture went viral, a good samaritan offered to sponsor the boy’s education until college if he can be found.
“A friend is looking for the boy in the picture, he wants to sponsor him till college!! Please help me find him. Share!!!!!”
Once again, the power of social media was put to the test, and it prevailed. The young boy has been found!. According to the Facebooker who found the boy, Daniel is a pupil of Nkwantappng DA school in the Ashanti region.
“Found him. He is in the Ashanti region, making arrangements to go see him. His mother [ has mental issues] and his father is deceased. His elder brother dropped out of school at class 5, he has joined galamsey. So he can support his other siblings. This life.”
Some Ghanaians opined that the support towards Oswald’s our day celebrations could have gone a long way to help children in rural and deprived areas. Others also felt the corporate organisations are ‘pro-poor and support the less privileged through their CSR activities.
