Businessman gives N450k to 300-level medical student who sells doughnuts to pay fees (photos)



The Zambian medical student went viral after news of him selling doughnut in order to get the money he needs to pay his school fees was posted online by a Twitter user.

According to the report, Reuben wakes up every morning by 3:00am to make the pastry. Then, he hawks it early enough before embarking on his academic activities.

Despite the rigour of this, he has managed to keep his dream of being a medical doctor alive. In a series of reactions, many encouraged the young man and told him to keep chasing his dream.

A Zambian businessman decided to take his act of encouragement a notch higher by donating over N450,000 to Reuben. The sponsor in question is Mukhtar Deria, the CEO of Hibo group of companies.

A photo of the medical student receiving money from the businessman was shared in a tweet by @Mwebantu. See the post below:
