Showing love to a mentally challenged makes my day

#showlovespreadlove The highest highlight of my today is making friends with a person with a mental health condition and sharing my mambo with him. Pete is his name he says. He asked only for puff puff for 100frs cfa and beans for 100frs cfa awwwwww. When my visit was over and I was leaving, he smiled as I waved…what a handsome young man…what could be Pete’s story? Where could his family be?  I am grateful I could connect with Pete and make him smile some with those red eyes which looked sleep deprived for days if not months. Angels above watch over Pete Amen 殺 #mentalhealthsupport #notostigma #loveinaction #loveandhealing


Marie Abanga aka MAG likes to describe herself as a “Jacqueline of several trades”. She is an everyday woman and mother with a zigzag profile. Let’s give it a try! She is an Activist, an Author, a Coach, a Consultant, a Feminist, a Lawyer, a Lecturer, a Prince 2 Project Manager, a Psychotherapist, a Philanthropist, a minister of the Word of God and...! She just loves to sum it up by saying she is a person of passions and a tale of talents. Her life’s journey has filled over 6 books already and her three musketeers keep her busy at home. MAG is also the founder and CEO of the association Hope for the Abused and Battered, and the Country Director of the Gabriel Bebonbechem Foundation for Epilepsy & Mental wellbeing. The plethora of life's experiences and shenanigans she has lived through and learned from in near 4 decades of existence, have equipped her with such an arsenal to coach, train and motivate just any and everyone. She is so charismatic, dynamic and full of life, going by her designed mantra of 3Ds: Determination; Discipline and Dedication. These sum her+her quest to be the best version of herself and impact others perfectly. She attributes all her wealth of knowledge to her conscientious attendance of both informal and formal school.
