Wife of Bukola Saraki, Toyin , Shares touching story of her first wellbeing Africa Beneficiary



 Wife of former Senate President , Toyin Saraki took to her official twitter hamdle to expressed her joy over the first beneficiary of her Foundation, WellbeingAfrica .

Below is her story ;
I came across a message from the very first wellbeing Africa beneficiary today , and I must share her story . We need stories of hope , especially now. 

Fayokemi had been injured from neck down in a car accident when I found her in intensive care at University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, she was 10 weeks pregnant .
I raised $50k to fly her to India for spinal repair , and I spent every last kobo I had spare , so I could not go with them , but her mother and husband accompanied her. The operation was tricky and fragile to repair her her spine while pregnant. But she and her son precious survived. And after months and months of hard physio work , they thrived.


Here is her son today ; this is precious. He turns 15 this week. 

We don’t always get the privilege of seeing the fruits of our labour: the strong and healthy mothers and children growing up together in loving homes that strengthen our communities. I am so proud of wellbeing Africa and overjoyed to hear from a healthy , happy Fayokemi today .
Mother her son
