Sometimes, when we look at all the savagery we see online, it becomes easy to assume that we have lost our humanity and that people do not care anymore.
Everybody is moving to everybody so then we think nobody has time to be a brother’s keeper.
… but boy were we wrong.
Today, we chanced on a very inspiring story on Twitter that got us reminding ourselves that we’re humans after all and believe it or not – there are still a number of good ones walking among us.
Twitter user, Kwame Kay took to Twitter earlier today to share a very uplifting experience he had this morning.
According to Kwame, he had misplaced his wallet more than a year ago and he has since tried to come to terms with the fact that he will never find it again…
Because…well, you know how you have to be extra careful when you’re walking in a certain side of town just to make sure your mobile phone and your money are with you by the time you get home right?
Once it is gone, you know you’d never see it again!
However, Kwame Kay was more than lucky – a good samaritan who goes by the name Walid Abi-Karam on Facebook, had found his wallet which he left in a Kaneshie bound troski.
Walid kept Kwame’s wallet and made frantic attempts to contact him but to no avail.
My guy rec me from my Facebook profile pic😂. Apparently he’s been messaging me since Feb 2018 but I haven’t opened Facebook in forever.
My 80ghs still dey the wallet inside la!

In the tweet below, Kwame shared a screenshot of his Facebook messenger showing the number of times Walid had repeatedly sent him messages informing him that he had his wallet.
However, if you thought Walid’s year-long quest of tracking down Kwame was amazing then you’d be blown away to note that everything in the wallet was also intact.
According to Kwame, the GHS 80 he had in the wallet was still in it a year after Walid returned it to him.

Look… Walid is the real MVP!
If only all of us can be like Walid…
