Things are fast falling into place for Mary Daniel, the 26-year-old amputee water hawker and her life is showing significant transformation.
The single mum, who used to sell bottled water on highways in the Oshodi area of Lagos, marked her 27th birthday on Friday with fanfare.
“I feel happy today,” Daniel enthused about the event. “I didn’t celebrate my birthday last year. I am grateful to God for what He has done in my life,” she said, her face lit up with smiles. “I never thought I would mark my birthday in a big way like this.”
She added, “People who know me before now have been calling me and making kind remarks about me. They said I have changed for good and they can hardly recognise me again.”
The Kogi-born woman is also set to establish a supermarket with donations she received from within and outside Nigeria.
Daniel’s status took a dramatic turnaround after her moving story was reported by Saturday PUNCH.
