The two young siblings, through no fault of their own, have suffered rejection, neglect, marginalisation, and mistreatment by many.
In spite of their economically challenged backgrounds, life has finally smiled on them.
David and his sister received a whopping GHc12,000 from Crime Check Foundation (CCF) to assist them in their education and business aspirations.
Crime Check made the announcement in a post on Facebook:
CCF donates 12,000 cedis to blind brother and sister. David and Esther are blind and have been shunned by society. Today, David's dream of going to the university to read law has been realized because he can afford to pay his fees and cater for his other needs. His sister can also begin her small business after struggling for financial support over the years. Many thanks to our cherished donors for their support.
