    Blind and yet still grinding like its nothing. May God bless his hustle. Even those of us with eyes still working ain’t finding it easy, not to talk of a blind guy.

    People like him are God’s message to us all that “As long as there is life, there is hope”.

    Oh wow! Now that IS inspiring. It would be nice to know more about him, and if there is any way to help make his job a little easier. If anyone knows please share. BN what he does is ‘Washing’ not Dry Cleaning, there is a difference.

    BN is he a dry cleaner or a washer man? Dry cleaning involves a lot of expensive equipment and chemicals. So which is it?

    See me complaining about my job. God I’m sorry for my plenty whining.

Bellanaija, pls find out and lets know how we can help. God bless him, his hustle and heal him in Jesus name, I believe miracles still happen.
