Upper East, Ghana | 87 years old
Family of 12
My name is Amino Imoro, I live in the Builsa district of Upper East Ghana. I am 87 years old and live with my daughter and her kids. There are 12 members in my family.
My daughter is not able to hear and see properly. She also has a history of mental illness after she was married.
After her marriage, she was a victim of domestic abuse which led her to this condition. For a mother, her child will always be the same small fragile child but the abuse she had been through is heart wrenching. It breaks my heart to see our family scattered during these difficult times.
Money has always been an issue but with these many members in the family, we aren't able to feed everyone properly. My daughter’s medicine is really expensive and there is no way we can afford them. Her situation is worsening and we can do nothing about it.
AFIM visited us and enquired about our struggle and donated us food and some essentials.We are promised good assistance and hopefully medicines for my daughter.
They are like a ray of light at the end of the tunnel after so many years. We are in a much better space now and hope everyone is contributing to this good work.
