He has since then been on his own with no form of support from anyone.

@Suo_boooo and his friend found out that the 60-year-old man has no roof over his head and has been eating from dumpsters.

To make matters worse, Mr Brown is currently battling with a kidney problem and needs funds to seek proper treatment.

Ghanaians are therefore being called upon to come to the aid of the elderly citizen.

Ghanaians who saw the post expressed how emotional it is.

I have known him for the past 20 years in the same state. He moves from one shop to the other to sleep at night.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a 109-year-old woman by the name, Abena Fatwowaa in an interview on a YouTube Channel called Bones Man Tv, narrated her sad story of how she lost her only child and currently lives in poverty-stricken condition.

According to the old lady, her nephew and sister are the ones taking care of her since the loss of her child.

In the video sighted by YEN.com.gh, the sleeping place of this poor woman was shown to be in a poor state and seemed threatening to her life.
