According to an article in The Independent, Eric Manu, a gardener from British Columbia, has returned to Canada to resume his job in order to raise funds to provide healthcare for his new “subjects.”

Mr. Manu became the chief of the Akan tribe after his uncle Dat passed away last year, and he moved back to southern Ghana with his family to take up his birthright. However, he has now returned to Canada to work as a landscaper and gardener to raise money for his 6,000-strong tribe.

When he first moved to Canada with his wife and small son, his boss, Susan Watson, started a foundation called To The Moon and Back, which sent the young King off with a shipment full of school supplies, clothing, laptops, and medical supplies. She even traveled to Ghana for the coronation ceremony.

Now, Mr. Manu is back in Canada working hard to raise money for his tribe, and he’s not letting his new royal status get in the way of his work.

“Sometimes we go to the (job) site and they say, ‘You are the chief. I saw you on TV. Why are you doing the landscaping?’ This is humbleness you understand. Anytime I’m in Canada, I’m proud to work for my boss,” he told CTV News.

The money raised during his several-month stay in Canada will be invested in improving healthcare for his tribe. The whole village is quite poor, and the clinic only has a midwife and a few nurses, with no doctor on site. Mr. Manu hopes to return to Ghana with another shipment of equipment and supplies for his tribe.

This story is inspiring because it shows how even when you become a king, you can still stay humble and work hard for the good of your people. Mr. Manu’s dedication to his tribe and his willingness to put in the work to help them is truly admirable, and it reminds us that even small actions can make a big difference.
