A grandmother in her 50s, Ekua Ataa, was left in tears of joy as she received keys to a two-bedroom house from the local charity Crime Check Foundation.
Crime Check Foundation, a non-governmental organisation, put smiles on the face of the widow by donating the two-bedroom house to her.
The new house which is located in Kasoa Ofaakor in the Central Region is Ataa's first concrete home after years of living in a kiosk.
The deprived widow had been living in the wooden kiosk in Sukura, a Zongo community in Accra with her twin grandchildren after her daughter died during delivery.
The executive director of Crime Check Foundation, Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng in a post on Facebook disclosed that the charity partnered with a real estate company to surprise Ataa with the new house.
''With support from Agyare Real Estate, we have surprised our dear sister [Ekua Ataa] who had given up in life. We made her believe someone wanted to give her a quarter plot. She followed us with tears of joy to the location of the land only to find a two-bedroom house in her name.''
