For some people, a chance encounter can change their lives forever. That was the case after Wanja Mwaura found one of her old friends from school living on the streets. And following that meeting, Wanja decided that she would try her best to help her former buddy turn his life around.
A resident of Kiambu County, Kenya, Wanja was heading towards a local market in October 2017. And on her way there, someone caught the nurse’s attention by calling out her name. However, not even Wanja could’ve predicted what happened next, as a figure from her past appeared before her on the sidewalk.
The 32-year-old nurse had come face-to-face with Patrick Wanjiru, one of her childhood friends from school. Wanja didn’t immediately recognize him, though, since his disheveled appearance had thrown him off. Then Patrick re-introduced himself – and left his old acquaintance speechless.
