And there’s nothing simple about the photos which convey powerful messages of what mothers, especially those in deprived areas go through as they go about their daily activities.

While this is not unique to just the women, these mothers risk their lives and those of their children as they jostle and bustle in an effort to make something meaningful of their day.

Nicholas Seun Adatsi shared the touching photos in a group noting that he had been awed by the sight of the women making their way across the stream.

"Maybe God is a woman. If you slide far enough to the 6th slide you might understand me.

I watched this woman in aww the whole time. And it was raining by the way. We were at Mognori (Ghana - Burkina Faso border in Bawku.) Instagram location says it's doesn't exist,'' Nicholas Seun Adatsi captioned his post.

YEN.com.gh sighted the powerful photos and has amplified them to highlight and remind people about the daily struggles of the African woman especially mothers.

Meanwhile, recent trends show that Ghanaian police officers have been in the media for all the good reasons including their benevolent gestures toward deprived persons, fixing broken traffic lights and entertaining people.

Although this is not their usual expression of kind gesture to a poor, disabled or displaced person, a video has emerged of a police officer dancing his heart out in syncopated moves to 'Freedom', a hit song of Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale.

The policeman owned the dance floor at an event and captivated many with his dance steps.
