A blind Hausa man named Ibrahim Umar has won the hearts of many people when he was first featured on a BBC Hausa special broadcast. The amazing factor about Ibrahim Umar is his talent. Despite the fact that he cannot clearly see, Mr Ibrahim Umar did not allow his condition become the source of his agony.
Ibrahim Umar is able to craft beautiful decorative flowers that can be used at home or offices. He also make some leather bags manually by himself without the use of any tool or equipment. Mr Ibrahim Umar usually sells off these handmade objects to people and use the proceeds from the sales to take care of himself.
Without resorting to street begging, Mr Ibrahim Umar is able to feed, clothe and cater for himself. This is a rare opportunity that most people in his condition are lacking. This is coming at a time if one is born with a defect, or is physically challenged, they will use their condition to their advantage by roaming on the major roads, streets and highway to beg for money.
