Nigerian Nollywood actor, Williams Uchemba has made lots of Nigerians shed tears out of excitement after he brought out a wretched family that has been living in a slum for 13 years and built them a new house.
The actor who also doubles as a comedian made this known via a video post he shared on Thursday via his Instagram page.
Williams had in a previous post narrated how he went into an undisclosed slum to distribute Covid-19 palliatives and found a certain family living in heartbreaking condition right in the slum.
A slum is a squalid and overcrowded urban street or district inhabited by very poor people. In Nigerian pidgin parlance, such places are called “Ghetto“.
According to the actor, what attracted his attention was a little girl reading on a pavement and when he enquired to know where she lives, was devastated to see the nature of their room.
As depicted in the pictures and video shared, the little girl, Chiamaka her sister, Chisom and their mother, Mrs. Chukwudi lived in what most Nigerians call “Batcher”, a house made of wood and covered with old dilapidated zinc roof and pieces of cartons.
According to story told by the family, their slum home gets flooded each time it rains.
Moved with pity, Williams Uchemba revealed he left after distributing the palliatives determined to take the family out of the slum.
So on Thursday, May 21, 2020, the kindhearted philanthropist fulfilled the promise he made to himself by relocating the family to a new house he built for them.
The family’s joy knew no bounds as they kept thanking him and also praying for him in the video.
Nigerians have since taken to the video’s comment section to appreciate and pray for the actor and comedian.
Majority of Nigerians who commented revealed that what Williams Uchemba did for that family made them shed tears out of excitement.

Few weeks ago I was at a slum to feed the people there and I came across a little girl that was reading on a pavement and it broke my heart to see the kind of condition there and then i saw the urgency to move the family out from there. With the Help of God we didn’t only give them a new house but a whole lot more that I will leave you to find out in the video. I want to thank Dr Nancy, JR BIOTEK Foundation, Golden Heart Foundation , @williams_uchembafoundation team and everyone that in one way or the other supported this project. God bless you immensely.
