10-year-old Ghanaian-American bestselling author, Nicholas Buamah, through his NGO, Books Without Borders, Inc. has purchased a wheelchair for Samuel Boayitey, a class 6 Pupil who crawls to school every day.
According to the young author, he and his mother chanced on an article with a headline ‘Disabled Class 6 Pupil who crawls 4 hours to school & 4th in class needs GH Cedis 650 for a wheelchair’ which was posted by Yen.com.gh on October 19, 2021. Young Buamah is determined to make sure children have the proper tools to succeed. He spoke the truth to this by recently arranging to purchase a wheelchair for 13-year-old Samuel Boayitey who is disabled and living in Affiduase, Sekyere East of Ashanti region-Kumasi Ghana.
Determined not to allow his disability to get in the way of his education, Samuel is reported to crawl 4 hours every day to school. Buamah says that his nonprofit, Books Without Borders, Inc. is on a mission to help give kids the proper tools to succeed. “In Samuel’s case, the tool he needed was a wheelchair so that’s what we’re supplying him with. After hearing his story and learning of his determination, I had to help.” Nicholas is quoted saying.
Speaking to Buamah’s mother, she said, “The original cost requested for the wheelchair was Ghs650 but after careful evaluation, the original organizers decided that it would be best for Samuel to receive an electric wheelchair so he wouldn’t have to depend on individuals to push the chair every day.” The cost for the electric wheelchair increased drastically to a reported Ghs7500, but that still didn’t stop the young philanthropists from keeping his promise to purchase the needed piece of equipment.
Buamah collaborated with the organizer Noble Wisdom Dordoe who runs, Give Me Hope Foundation. Mr Dordoe’s foundation brought attention to Samuel’s situation and is thankful that the young man will be blessed with a wheelchair but also wanted people to know that this is just one of several kids that need assistance like this. Samuel also needs an expensive surgery which will cost an average of Ghs55000. If there’s anyone who wishes to contribute to this humanitarian cause, please contact Give Me Hope Foundation.
Young Buamah uses the profits from the sale of his 3 books to continue his philanthropic work. For the upcoming holiday, he will be renewing the health care cards for many children in Ghana.
