I fell sick while driving home a few days ago and needed water, I had no physical cash on me except momo. I was also embarrassed to ask those in traffic, I mean who would take momo for just 2 cedis water? I began to dehydrate more, I had passed at least 4 bottle water sellers on the kpone stretch, then I saw this young lady, I whispered that I wanted water and can only pay via momo. She declined the momo and gave me the water when she saw the state I was in. I drank the water, washed my face and rested a bit. She didn’t want me to pay, I insisted on taking her number to thank her later… I drove off thanking God and thinking how this girl saved me in ways she would never know. I called her next morning to thank her and went ahead to send her momo to show just how grateful I am. she called back, shocked and happy. We had a long conversation and I discovered she’s an SHS drop out, she’s agreed to meet me to talk and I honestly can’t wait to see where this goes, I hope I can also make an impact in her life. The people with the least can be so kind. I’m grateful to Portia.
