In Katsina, the Twitter community empowers a poor mother of seven whose children are fed raw leaves.
Sadiya’s children were shown in a video eating raw leaves, and a group of Twitter users in Nigeria have taken it upon themselves to empower her.
Sadiya and her seven children were forced to flee their community in Mabai, Kankara Local Government Area, Katsina due to insecurities.
When Sadiya’s business was destroyed by bandits, she and her seven children resorted to eating raw leaves to quench their hunger, according to a source.
It was discovered that Sadiya’s eldest son developed a chronic liver disease as a result of a lack of food and bad health treatment.
Her eight-month-old baby has been battling measles for nearly a month without taking any treatment.
Sadiya, on the other hand, was given N40,000 to start a business at Mabai’s internally displaced persons’ camp, as well as a variety of food stuffs to feed herself and her family.
After a Twitter user, @jaymb000, tweeted a brief video clip of Sadiya and her children eating raw leaves on a farm, the needed help became a reality.
The video, on the other hand, grabbed the attention of some generous people to their need, and they came to the family’s aid.
Sadiya joyfully danced and thanked all who contributed to the wonderful gesture as she expressed her gratitude.
