A Nigerian doctor who is being owed for months, reportedly went out of his comfort zone to take care of twins whose mother died four days after their birth.
According to Twitter user @Deekachy_Md, the kids who were left with their grandmother after their mom’s death, became malnourished (marasmus). It was gathered that the Nigerian doctor handed their teary grandmother a ‘fat envelope’, which he got after he reached out to some of his friends.
She concluded the tweets by saying ‘No matter how bad your situation, you are better than someone else’

I just witnessed the most amazing thing this morning. So these twins in our ward lost mum at 4 days old. Left to grandma, who had little. Became severely malnourished (Google Marasmus). No money for drugs or food still. This morning, my colleague despite being owed for months.
He handed them a fat envelope. He had reached out to friends for money to help them, unknown to the family. They responded in a BIG way. Grandma and the ward of patients were driven to tears of gratitude, I inclusive. In their eyes, I saw Hope return, as they blessed us
He owed them nothing, had the right if he wanted to ignore them and just be their Doctor, do his part and maybe document that patients were yet to purchase drugs due to financial incapabilities, Yet…, he went the extra mile. He is not the only Angel out there, I have met some.
When in a position to help one, If you can, Please help. No matter how bad your situation, you are better than someone else. Moral: -Not all angels have wings. -You are never unqualified to be someone’s angel -May our Angels locate us this week Shout out to all Angels
