The woman who was assaulted by a police officer at a Midland Savings and Loans branch has reportedly received cash donations to the tune of GHc40,000.
There was outrage among the majority of Ghanaians following footages of a policeman mercilessly beating up a woman, later identified as Patience Sarfo.
In the said video, the police officer is captured beating up the woman despite she carrying a baby in her hands.

Patience had entered the Midland Savings and Loan banking hall after transaction hours to withdraw some money.
However, she was refused the transaction on the explanation that banking hours were over and that she could therefore not withdraw her money.
Upon insisting, the police officer, who has since been identified as Frederick Amanor, was called to drive the woman out of the banking hall.
The one minute-twenty-seven seconds (1:27) video which was apparently recorded by an onlooker captured the policeman abusing the lady, first hitting her with an umbrella and then later countlessly slapping her on the face, before dragging her out.

Several Ghanaians took to various social media platforms to condemn the actions of the policeman, who has since been remanded by the Police administration.
But in a rather kind gesture, Patience has received several donations from Ghanaians following her ordeal.
Reports suggest that she has received cash donations amounting to GHc40,000, as well as foodstuff and clothing.
Accra based radio station, Peace FM has made a donation of GHC 2,000 for medical bills and GHC 5,000 for her upkeep.
Also, NPP National Women's Organiser Kate Gyamfua donated rice and other foodstuffs + ₵5,000 cash to the woman who was assaulted by that monster in uniform.
