The Lagos State Government has taken over the welfare of Mary Daniel, the 26-year-old amputee single mother who hawked table water in traffic in the Oshodi area of the state to earn a living.

This is just as donations by good samaritans from within and outside the country keep pouring into Daniel’s bank account after Saturday PUNCH reported Daniel’s moving story.

Our correspondent had narrated how Daniel began to live through a gruelling life after losing her parents and her right leg to an accident in December 2006 while they were travelling to their hometown in Ayingba, Kogi State from Katsina State for Yuletide.

Dropping out at Junior Secondary School 3, she took to the streets in Onitsha, Anambra State, selling sachet water to cater to herself and her aged grandmother based in Ayingba.

She was impregnated in 2018 by a man who denied responsibility, forcing her to relocate to Delta State out of shame.

Daniel relocated to Lagos about two weeks ago, hawking bottled water in chaotic traffic and passing the night on the balcony of a building on Suwebatu Street, Oshodi.
