Glamorizing poverty like it's something people choose. Do you think she didn't want soft life too. How does someone's lack of access to clean water make them a hero
Nothing heroic here! Access to safe and Clean water is a human right, and this is otherwise!
Let's not glamourise this... it's not right, it's unfortunate and should not be happening.
People glamourising this, are the beneficiaries of resources deviated to elleviate these shameful scenes, they fraudulently abuse public funds to stage Hollywood weddings, buy SUV’s, enjoy celebrity lives while majority lack a days decent meal or primary health care.
By what standard? So those of us that are fortunate to have access to drinking water are not heroes or what?!
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a young man has been captured on camera taking a full loaf of bread with polluted brown-looking water from what appeared to be a stagnant pond.
The gentleman indicated that it was a result of a broken heart but many people have been expressing opposing views on the video sighted by YEN.com.gh on the Instagram handle of @emmazegit_4real.
What appears to be interesting about the video is that the gentleman was seen taking the 'meal' with great joy, which removed all initial suspicions that it was out of hunger.
