After years of living in a dilapidated mudhouse under deplorable conditions, 65-year-old blind Wofa Yaw from Pekyi-Tweapeasi in the Ashanti Region, has been given a new house.
Before the gesture, he lived in a muddy thatch in extreme poverty under heart-wrenching conditions, going without food for days sometimes.
The fate of the aged man with visual impairment received a glimpse of hope after his plight came to the attention of the Bernard Nketiah Ministries. Then, the journey to provide him with a dignifying accommodation began.
The Good Samaritan
Bernard Nketiah, the founder of the Ministry, sacrificed everything to ensure that Wofa Yaw is loved and respected by building the visually impaired man a new self-contained apartment.
