Mary Daniel, the homeless amputee and single mother in Lagos, has appeared totally radiant in new photos to mark her 27th birthday.
Her new glowing look in the photos serve as a turnaround from the yellow skirt and ash-coloured T-shirt which caught the public’s attention.
In one of the photos she is seen in a red dress. In another, she posed in a dress made from local fabrics.
Daniel’s fortune changed after her plight got national attention.
The Lagos State Government placed Daniel, an indigene of Ayingba, Kogi State, on “temporary protective custody.”
Special adviser to the governor on civic engagement Princess Aderemi Adebowale had said the move became necessary in order to protect the physically challenged woman from abuse and risk.
The single mother was discovered weeks after she got into Lagos hawking bottled water in traffic in Oshodi area of the state.
Adebowale had also said the temporary shelter was provided pending when further plans would be concluded by the government to get Daniel an apartment and also empower her.
