Jasmine Turkson, a woman who was found on the street at McCarthy Hills in Accra, has been given a complete makeover by local charity De-Graft Johnson Foundation.
The struggling woman who was found with two boys appeared quite unkempt when the charity captured them in photos.
De-Graft Johnson Foundation in a post on its Facebook page disclosed that Jasmine Turkson was transformed and given a bedazzling look.
Turkson who was also on the street because she was unable to provide shelter for herself was given an undisclosed amount.
''A transformation of Jasmine Turkson a lady we found on the streets of Mccarthy Hills in Accra. De-Graft Johnson Show listened to her and decided to give her a total makeover, some money for her upkeep, and a place later she can call home,'' the post read.
