One of the biggest Facebook communities in Nigeria, YorochiTV has done something extraordinary again, this time raising over N2 Million to buy two prosthetic legs for two brothers.
This feat all began with a campaign dubbed “ANDRES WILL WALK AGAIN” and gradually metamorphosed into one of the fastest fundraisers FIERCEENT has ever seen.
The Andres will walk again trend started on August 13th around 3pm, after David Iyenyorochi Obi, the founder of YorochiTV together with every other member of the Facebook Community agreed to contribute and raise 1million naira for one of its members as a gift on his birthday, Andres Idika who was involved in an unfortunate accident alongside his brother, Chidiebere. This accident cost both of them a leg each. The money was meant to be used to get him a prosthetic leg.
Yesterday, August 14th, around 3:05 PM, members of YorochiTV successfully raised 1.1million naira after a lot of contributions and prayers.
It didn’t take long, the CEO of Yorochitv, David Iyenyorochi Obi asked the members of the community nicknamed YOROCHIANS if they were still able to raise another 1million for Andres’ elder brother, Chidiebere to walk again too.
Yorochians were willing!! Yorochians were ready!!! and at 3:05pm, the second fundraiser began for Andres’ brother while the hashtag “Chidieberewillwalkagain” began trending on the social Media Platform
By 11am on Sunday, August 15th over N2 Million has been raised for the two brothers.
Andres never expected such a big birthday gift.
Who talk say good people no dey?
