A young mother of two boys, simply identified as Akua, is struggling with homelessness coupled with her inability to fend for herself and her children.
According to Akua, she is facing financial difficulties and is unable to provide for her little boys. She said whenever her 3-year-old son needs food, he survives on her empty breast for saliva because there is no food.
The young struggling mother of two sons sat in an interview with Kofi TV and disclosed that she moved to Ghana’s capital, Accra, in search of greener pastures, but that dream continues to face major roadblocks.
She reveals that she is currently unemployed and life has been very difficult as a result. Currently, Akua and her two sons are struggling with homelessness and have been seeking refuge in the streets.
YEN.com.gh gathers that at night, Akua places cardboard on the ground alongside four gallons and a mosquito net to serve as a bed for her 2 sons to sleep. She leans against a tree to watch over them throughout the night.
Akua narrates her heart-wrenching ordeal in the video below.
