Saanie Daara, in a caption to the photo, urged Ghanaians to buy from street hawkers to support them financially.

"When you meet them, buy a meal or two, give them a gift – it's not just food. It's support for the trader to put food on the table of struggling families. Reflecting on how much they make, you would realize the profits are so small for the massive efforts they put in," the post read.
