''The hospitals in the UK are advanced and well-equipped compared to Ghana. The doctors here are also better trained. The UK health system caters for my health needs better than when I was in Ghana,'' he told Ghanaian vlogger Sister Akos.

Ghanaian trashman is a giver

The native of Ghana's Western Region recounted that most people back home reach out to him for assistance because of the harsh condition in his native country compared to the UK.

''Many people, including family members, call for financial assistance. My classmate, doctors, pensioners, and electricians call to ask for phones, money to fund a new shop,'' he said.

The septuagenarian spoke to vlogger Sister Akos in a Facebook video that has been viewed many times.
