Orphan, Meru Graduate Gets Online Charity: Official Clothes

Brian Areri, a Bachelor of Education graduate from Meru University of Science and Technology, recently found himself in need of professional attire for a job interview and the start of his teaching career at Obwari Secondary School. In a heartfelt plea, he reached out to Sammy Ondimu Ngare, a digital creator with over 260,000 followers on Facebook, for assistance.

Brian’s request read: “Evening, sir. I don’t know how to say this, but I need your help, and it may sound urgent. I applied for a chance to teach at Obwari Secondary School. Today, I was called, and I was given an opportunity there. Now my challenge is I don’t have official clothes. I was asking if you could help me with some money to buy at least two pairs of trousers and two shirts together with shoes as I left my official shoes at the university so that when I get some money, I can buy new ones. I am requesting your help, sir. You know you are everything to me. Grandmother has nothing.”

Sammy Ondimu Ngare, known for his philanthropy, had previously supported Brian through his university education, ensuring he could complete his studies despite financial hardships. Upon seeing Brian’s message, Sammy shared the request on his social media, and the response was overwhelming.

Support poured in from Sammy’s followers, who offered to provide the necessary clothing and more:

– Hon Jumah Junior: “One trouser and a pair of shoes.”
– Buffalowings Mwitu Wa Timoteo: “Does he wear soft khaki pants? If yes, let him give us his size.”
– Shamim Givenx: “I can bless him with a pair of trousers and a shirt from my shop.”
– William Ogopa: “My house is empty. I can offer accommodation.”
– Shiru James: “Sometimes, I cry when I see someone in such a situation, and I can’t afford to help. I pray that one day, God will bless me and others.”

Meru University, which graduates over 200 students annually in education courses, continues to produce skilled professionals despite challenges such as student riots and other institutional issues. The university boasts over 10,000 graduates in various fields, including diplomas, undergraduate, and postgraduate degrees.

Brian’s story is a testament to the power of community and generosity. The support he received ensures that he can begin his teaching career with confidence and dignity. This episode highlights the importance of helping others, especially in times of need.

The outpouring of assistance for Brian serves as an inspiration. It shows that collective goodwill can change lives. Graduates and students are encouraged to support each other, whether through financial help or simply being there for one another, to foster a compassionate and supportive community.

Sammy’s act of kindness, along with the contributions from other well-wishers, demonstrates that no act of generosity is too small. Each contribution has the potential to make a significant impact. As we move forward, let us continue this spirit of giving and support, knowing that the help we offer today could be a steppingstone for someone’s brighter future.
