Lilian Akorfa, 65, a grandmother has recounted her difficult life experiences after she received food item and a key to her rented house to ameliorate her living standard.
For years, the aged woman has been living in a deplorable condition struggling daily to fend for herself.
As part of a Charity Series project by Crime Check Foundation, Lilian Akorfa received a key to her new rented house to have a much better dignified living space.
Amid tears, she narrated that she has suffered because she didn’t have anybody to come to her aid.
Madam Lilian Akorfa, who sat with Ibrahim Kwarteng of Crime Check Foundation, said she couldn’t understand why she had had to struggle in life with no help.
Prior to the one-on-one interview, the foundation visited Madam Akorfa at her old residence where she indicated that it would be better if she dies than to stay alive and suffer.
''I beg before I eat. I have no money. I have only five cedis which was given to me by someone,'' she said with teary eyes.
At her old residence, the foundation through its donors presented food items to the aged woman.
When asked what she had to say to the donors, the 65-year-old woman fell, tearfully rolling on the floor after receiving food items and a cash amount to rent a new place.
Lilian Akorfa has moved to her new place but noted that she currently sleeps on the floor with just a cloth and pillow.
''I don’t have a mattress. I had to sleep on the floor with a cloth on the floor on my first night at my new place.''
She received GHC2,400 from donors who sent money to be given to her to start a business as a fruit vendor.
Madam Akorfa expressed gratitude to the benevolent donors who gave to positively impact her life.
