Their journey changed overnight after their love story went viral on social media during Valentine’s Day.

Speaking to SDE at the time, Muchiri, the brainchild behind the transformational shoot said that their genuine love story motivated and touched their hearts.

Their love story has defied all odds. They are a young, amazing couple with a genuine story to tell. When we took them for the shoot from Central Park, well-wishers just chipped in providing the stuff used in makeover such as clothes and makeup,” said Muchiri.

Before long they were on a plane and enjoying a roof over their head after the tour company paid their 5 months’ rent to kick-start their lives.
