Guy Who Pushed Woman In Powered-Off Wheelchair Home Now Raises Money To Buy Her A Van

One Georgia man has once again proved that kindness still prevails in a world full of hatred. First he pushed a disabled woman for a mile back home. Now he is collecting donations for her!

You’ve probably already seen the video with Bilal Quintyne, 24 y.o father of two, helping a stranger get back home after her electric wheelchair lost power.

When the man learned that his accidental friend Belinda Whitaker had lost her handicap-equipped van in an accident, started a GoFundMe page to raise money to buy her a new one.

That day Bilal was out for a morning jog. Belinda Whitaker was sitting helplessly in an immobile electric wheelchair. Dozens passed by without stopping to inquire what was wrong. Belinda looked distracted and the only thing she asked for was to call for aid. Instead, Bilal sprang into action. He pushed the woman approximately one mile back to her senior living community.

“God blessed me with a able body. So WE pulled her home. A mile or not I wouldn’t go home until she was home. Period,”
 Quintyne wrote in a Facebook post with the video.

The walk took about 30 minutes in 90-degrees heat. When they finally reached the woman’s home, Quintyne asked where she was headed before her wheelchair broke down. “When I learned she was on her way to the grocery store, I offered to go food shopping for her, but she wouldn’t allow me,” he said.

The video elicited overwhelming response. Belinda Whitaker thanked Bilal for compassion and involvement.

The accidental encounter has recently had its continuation. Without her handicap-equipped van, even simple visits to doctors and shops had become a burden for Belinda. So Bilal he landed a helping hand again.

He started fundraising and in just four days he has collected $530 of $12,000 goal so that Belinda can live a fulfilling life without the fear of being stranded.
