They were not expecting it. A physically challenged man and a - five - year old boy had the burden of their challenges made lesser to bear both by them and their caregivers as the Less Privileged Children Encouragement Initiative(EI) and the Great Provider Bible Ministry (GPBM) defied the Sallah Day morning downpour in Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, to touch their lives positively.

While the EI facilitated the presentation of a pair of crutches to the man, the boy and his mother had foodstuffs as palliative presented to them.

The pair of crutches was provided by The Great Provider Bible Ministry (GPBM).

The Founder of the ministry, Pastor Taiwo Ogbebor, used the opportunity to explain the vision and mission of the ministry to the beneficiary. He thereafter prayed for the beneficiary and his family.

GPBM has provided several wheel chairs, crutches, etc. to many PLWD in Ijebu-Ode and its environ.

The Daily Crucible gathered that right within the same house where the presentation was made, a young lady who is a PLWD and whose 5-year old boy who looks like a 2-year old and also a PLWD was spotted.

According to the mother, the boy was born lame, but with the assistance of some people, the boy was taken to the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital(OOUTH), Sagamu, and after orthopedic attention given to the legs, he was able walk, though in a wobbly fashion.

The mother said she has not been able to trace the father of her child.

EI immediately provided some foodstuffs for mother and child while GPBM promised to look into their health challenges, with a promise of providing a pair of crutches for the mother as God provides.

The initiator of EI, Dr. Rotimi Akinlesi, said helping the indigent, particularly kids and school children, is a passion, expressing his determination to keep bringing succour to them.

"If you are more fortunate than others, it is better to build a longer table than a taller fence. At the Less Privileged Children Encouragement Initiative (EI), we will keep doing our best in reaching out to the less privileged kids, who due to no fault of theirs face one form of existential challenges or the other," he said.
