An inspiring woman, who faced abuse from her family after she found a bag containing millions of dollars by an ATM and handed it over to the police continues to count her blessings as she has been rewarded with over GHc 38,000.
Ackasiha Green, 24, who was vilified by her family after she returned a bag full of money, has received nearly GHc 39,000 for being honest and staying true to her character.
The mother of two became popular early in May 2019 after her honest act and the reaction of her mother, who abused her for not keeping the money, won her a lot of praise, rewards and sympathies.
Prior to making the trends, Ackasiha Green was facing financial challenges and was planning to attend school to study a housekeeping course.
She said that she returned the money she found by the ATM at Central to the police because it wasn’t for her to keep.
Her mother called her the most stupid of all her children for returning the money especially when she had borrowed GHc 1,000 from her on the day she found the cash which has since been picked up by the owner, an armoured truck driver who had apparently forgotten the bag of money at the ATM.
She has received several gifts from Jamaicans after her kind gesture and was also presented with a gift certificate from the HEART Trust/NTA entrepreneurial agency that will cover the cost of completing levels I and II at its Learning for Earning Activity Programme (LEAP) Centre.
The missing bag was picked up by an armoured truck bearer who had apparently forgotten the bag of money at the ATM.
