Through it’s TV show, Touching Lives, Airtel Nigeria has come to the aid of a young man, Joseph Ogwuche, a sole survivor of a ghastly motor accident that claimed the lives of his father, mother and siblings, rendering him forlorn and homeless.

As Ogwuche’s troubles compounded after the unfortunate loss, he said he felt like the ground should open and swallow him up. He also dropped out of school in 2004 when he could no longer continue his tertiary education. However, one of his friends nominated him for the Touching Lives Season 2.

In Episode 5, which aired last Sunday, the company helped Ogwuche, who had almost given up on himself to start life anew.  He was empowered with a goat farm so he could make a living for himself.

“I’m happy and on top of the world,” he said as the announced the support given the company.

In the second story, a revisit of Season 1, the telco also provided support for two kids, Hosea and Isuwa Gajere, victims of a hit- and-run accident. The former, who lost his left leg as result of the accident, got a prosthetic leg that now enables him to walk, while the later who sustained several injuries on his head, was offered physiotherapy consultation for 3 months.
