A 67-year-old woman called Gloria has risen above her challenges. The woman's horrible condition was noticed by an organisation called Age Nigeria Foundation when she called into their live radio programme to make a contribution.

Before the foundation came to her rescue, Gloria was alone in her makeshift house made of planks on land close to a big refuse dump in Sangotedo, behind Eti Osa LCDA Secretariat.

Most times, the wastes seeped to her front door, making her living condition very terrible. With the initial help of her local government, the invasion stopped.

Days after the NGO visited her, a good Samaritan donated a wheelchair to her to help her mobility. During the presentation of the gift, the old woman was very grateful and she expressed her happiness.

Before the help came her way, 67-year-old Gloria only relied on a walking aid to move around her house.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a video of Lovell Rosebud Wordie had hit social media with a massive stir as it shows the stunning lady confidently representing Ghana in London in 1968.

Lovell Rosebud Wordie won the Miss Ghana Pageant when she was only 19 years old and had to mount the stage for Miss World in London.

At the time, racism was still grim in many parts of the world, which makes the level of courage, confidence and tenacity displayed by the Ghanaian beauty queen a spectacle to watch.
