Woman Looks At Drug Addict Like A Human Being – Later Discovers Something Amazing

At some point in your life, you’ve probably wondered what your childhood friends are doing right now. Did they go to college? Did they become rich? Are they married? Are they safe? One woman from Kenya has had these questions answered after she had an unexpected reunion with one of her closest childhood companions.

The woman in question, Wanja Mwaura, works as a nurse in Lower Kabete, a neighborhood in Kenya’s capital Nairobi. One day, Ms. Mwaura was leaving the local market when she “met this shaggy, dirty boy” who had approached her and “called [her] by [her] name.”

When she heard the man – who looked like a “mad person” – screaming her name, Ms. Mwaura was understandably frightened, wondering how the man knew who she was and worrying that he was going to rob or attack her.

However, as the man began talking to her, Ms. Mwaura realized that he reminded her of someone from her past. Finally, the kind-hearted nurse realized that the man was a former friend from her primary school. According to Spotlight Stories, Ms. Mwaura’s friend’s name was Hinga.

The only reason that Ms. Mwaura thought Hinga was mad was because his behavior and mannerisms were being influenced by long-term drug usage. In fact, after 20 years of substance abuse, it was actually a wonder that Ms. Mwaura was able to identify her primary school friend.

Hinga’s current condition floored Ms. Mwaura, who recalls that the tortured young man used to be “one of the brightest boys in class.” However, when Hinga’s grandmother passed away, the promising young boy lost his way, abandoning his studies and picking up a devastating drug habit along the way.

According to Ms. Mwaura, the main reason that Hinga turned to drugs was because it was one of the most effective ways to cope with living on the street after his grandmother died. As Hinga told his primary school friend about his current situation, the troubled young man revealed that there had been a time when he “would do anything he would come across just to get high.”

It was at this point that Ms. Mwaura knew she had to do anything in her power to help her old friend. Using social media, Ms. Mwaura was able to create a rudimentary support network – made up of primary school classmates and teachers – to help support Hinga and get him back on his feet.

“It’s all about love,” Ms. Mwaura told Spotlight Stories. “If I didn’t show him love, he wouldn’t have gone to rehab.” Ms. Mwaura started the process herself, giving Hinga her phone number to show the damaged man that she trusted and believed in him.

Now, two months after he approached Ms. Mwaura, Hinga is looking and feeling better than ever. Ms. Mwaura’s latest photo with Hinga shows him sitting next to his old friend. Now, the former drug addict is staring at the camera without a manic look in his eyes and seems to be clothed and calm.
