Cameroonian Prisoner's Letter For Help Found In A Shopping Bag In USA!
God works miracles in many ways and Stephanie Wilson set on a mission to find and rescue him!
According to businessinsider.com, Njong's chilling letter for help was discovered by a US shopper, Stephanie Wilson who immediately sort for help from investigation teams in New York and China to help save Njong from the plight of Chinese prisons.
Njong had been arrested for fraud in March 2011, a crime he said he was innocent of. He was an English teacher before his arrest and while in prison he claimed they were treated like slaves; producing paper bags and sometimes electronics in Chinese factories from 6:00am to 10:00pm daily.
He wrote his letter out one of the paper bags he created and had written close to five letters which he hid inside some of the bags been exported across the globe.
After series of investigation – for 3 years – Njong was finally discovered in Dubai! He was sent out of prison after three years for good behaviour and deported to Cameroon to meet his family who thought he’d died. He later got a job in Dubai where he is presently.
Njong says, "It was the biggest surprise of my life... i am just happy that someone heard my cry." He was able to identify key facts in the letter unprompted such as its mention of Samuel Eto'o, a professional soccer player with Chelsea FC and the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, where Njong also comes from.
As for the founder, Stephanie Wilson, she’s never met Njong but she joined a nonprofit Social Accountability International organisation. She says,
"This has been the biggest eye-opener for me. I have never once thought about the people making my shopping bag or other consumable products like the pen i write with or the plastic fork I eat my lunch with."
Now she knows, how about you?
