A 70-year-old Ghanaian woman living with visual impairment named Maame Yaa Senya has revealed that due to the hardship she faces, her wish is for God to take her life.
The woman said this to a team from Crime Check Foundation who went to visit her as part of their village outreach to see how they are doing.
Maame Senya who is at the Sekyere Kumawu District in the Ashanti Region indicated that there is no financial support from anywhere and the only child taking care of her is unable to work at the same time.
“Things are difficult for me. I don’t get help from anywhere because my husband is dead and only one of three kids stay with me. It has been two years since I became blind. I can’t do basic things so it’s my daughter who has been helping me. Now, I wish God takes my life," she said.
According to Maame Yaa's daughter who was also interviewed in the sad video, all that keeps them alive is a small farm she cultivates every morning.
She explained that because her mother is unable to do anything to herself due to blindness and weakness, it is impossible to leave her and go in search of a better source of livelihood.
The old woman received a GH¢200-donation from the Crime Check Foundation to assist in her plight and she wept uncontrollably.
