So Touching: See Beautiful Ibadan Student Whose Legs Were Amputated (Photos)



 
Adenike
 
Tori News has come across the story of Adenike, an amputee student of Ibadan Polytechnic as shared by Twitter user, Awa Ti Ibadan. 
 
She lost her leg at the age of 5 due to serious medical complications and this never deterred her from chasing her dreams in life.
 
Efforts are being made on social media to solicit for funds to make life better for the promising damsel whose good behaviour has been attested to by her friends and coursemates.
 
Read her story:
 
"As a toddler, Adenike's legs began to rot away. At age 5, her two legs were amputated in order to save her life. My friend @ayaworanho3d did a documentary on Adenike's story. It was nominated for the best documentary at the AMVCA 2018.

Despite her state & paucity of funds, she chose to go to school, believing her condition will not stop her from having an education. Today she's a student of the Polytechnic of Ibadan. Adenike is a cheerful girl, always smiling & full of life despite everything.

The current prosthetics which she uses no longer functions. She has outgrown the prosthetics, making it difficult for her to move around without human support.

If you know any organization that supports amputees or foundations that can help provide funds (or prosthetics) PLEASE

Help mention them on this tweet. If you can help make recommendations to individuals that can help Adenike get new prosthetics & a new life again, PLS help.

PS: Adenike did not demand this but my heart really wishes to gives this a shot for her. A new prosthetics for Christmas."

“The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board had in less than two years shown commitment to the avowed direction of the President Buhari-led administration by returning over 15 billion.
