Amputee ‘pure water’ seller gets help from politician to leave the street

Nigerian Lady Amputee Street Hawker

Help has located a physically challenged lady who was captured in a recent viral video hawking sachet (pure) and bottled water in the streets.

The Nigerian lady was seen in the viral video moving in the streets with the help of a wooden crutch while carrying a load of bot sachet and bottled water on her head for sale to make ends meet.

The wooden crutch alone looks heavy, coupled with the heavy load of water is no doubt a daunting daily activity for a physically challenged woman to depend on for survival.


A video that captured her going about her business in the streets despite her condition circulated on the internet and got many people reacting and sympathizing with her.

The lady identified as Mary Daniel was seen in the video with her right leg amputated as she walks with the support of a wooden crutch selling her bottled and ‘pure water’.

Her plight as captured in the viral video touched the heart of former Imo Chief of Staff, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, Nigeria who has now come to her aid to better her living condition and probably take her from the street.

Mary Daniel has reportedly received N1,000,000.00 (GH¢15,164.89) from the politician.

She is seen in a photo with Mr. Ugwumba Uche Nwosu while another one also shows both of them feasting with three other men.
