According to One of Ghana’s favorite social media influencers who has used his platform to transform the lives of many privileged people, James Annor Tetteh, popularly known on social media as Nana Tea;
“I had lived in the village all my life and carrying logs was not new to me. When I saw the boy, it brought back memories. I shared the picture without the boy’s face describing the memories it came with and some people didn’t take it lightly.
“Some said I had posted it for likes instead of helping the boy carry the firewood. Fortunately, there was a lady in the US who saw the post and decided to help the boy with GH₵200. I shared that feedback and other people decided to donate more. When I visited him at home, I realised he had ring worm so we sought medical help for him, bought him stationery for school and a wheel barrow to transport his firewood. The rest of the money was invested on his behalf,” he explained.
From that single act, many people started contacting Nana Tea to either seek help or give him funds to support other people.
Nana Tea said, he appreciated the challenges people went through in life as he and his siblings had a difficult childhood. But for the intervention of some benevolent people, they wouldn’t have gone to school.
“My mother passed away when I was 14 and my siblings were very young. My father struggled to take care of us. My education was sponsored by someone from Primary to Junior High School. When I gained admission into Senior High School, I delayed in reporting because we couldn’t afford the fees. Thankfully, the headmaster considered me and I started and Plan Ghana gave me a scholarship throughout my stay.
“I know what it feels like to not have food at home and so although the demand from people keeps increasing and can be overwhelming, I try my best to connect them to people who can help,” he explained.
