Banker gifts container to shoemaker who helped him 15 years ago

A simple act of kindness demonstrated by a shoemaker more than a decade ago has earned him goodwill with the man he offered assistance.

The disabled cobbler helped a school boy who did not have good shoes while going to school 15 years ago.

The kid he helped is now a banker known as Edward Asare, and he recently paid him a visit to show gratitude.

Asare narrated via LinkedIn how the physically challenged shoemaker helped him repair his spoilt school shoes back in 2007.

Edward decided to reward him in 2022 by donating a container to use as his workshop.

He wrote; ”I used to walk from Kokomlemle close to Joy FM to school at Deyoungsters close to Akufo Addo’s house at Nima.

My footwears always spoilt early due to the wear and tear on the road.

One time while going to school, this physically challenged man who is a shoe repairer saw me holding one of my sneakers in my hands, called me and repaired it for me. He did it for free. He didn’t collect any money from me 🥺

This was around 2007/2008.

I never forgot his act of kindness. It has always been in mind.

I made a post on Twitter about him and I was told by someone who stays close to where he used to work that he is still there.

I went there to visit him and to tell him how that act of kindness touched the core of my heart.

He couldn’t remember me because it’s been over 16 years ago and apparently I was not the only child whose footwear he repaired for free.

A Good Samaritan recently made him this container to work in

Indeed the world belongs to givers

I am grateful Mr. Ernest Adu Ansah”
