The vice-president of the Republic of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has fulfilled his promise to build a new house for Dari Poga, an 80-year-old woman with leprosy who has been abandoned by her children.
This follows a Joy News report that highlighted the plights of the elderly woman.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the 80-year-old woman, a resident of Gurungu in the Upper West Region, has been abandoned by her children.
Dari Poga suffered from leprosy at a very young age and had to resort to the usage of concoctions to treat her ailment.
In spite of the treatment, however, she has lost all 10 fingers and now uses only her two toes to walk.
In a recent documentary, the octogenarian recounted her heart-wrenching condition to Joy News.
Following the report, Ghana’s vice-president, Dr. Bawumia stepped in to offer assistance and donated some items and cash. He also promised Dari Poga a new house.
In some photos sighted by YEN.com.gh, the house promised the old woman with leprosy is ready and she will soon be moving in.
