- A 31-year-old Ghanaian mother of four named Sophia Koji has been living in a 'kiosk' with all her kids and hawking to make ends meet
- In an interview, she confirmed that all the fathers of her different children abandoned them
- Crime Check Foundation, who interviewed Sophia, seeks public support to help get her a sustainable form of livelihood
Sophia Koji, a 31-year-old Ghanaian lady, has revealed that she had gotten herself in a lot of hardship after wrongfully thinking that men would take care of her.
According to a narration by the lady on Crimecheckfoundation.org, she had four children with different men but for some reason, all of them abandoned her instead of assisting to take care of her kids.
Sophia explained that she has had to resort to living in a kiosk with all her children and starve for many days as she is unable to establish a good income flow for herself.
"We have been starving because the day I do not make enough sales to meet my target for the day, I give my savings to my master. Most of my items are finished but I won’t be given any if I don’t make previous payment."
Compounding her woes, Koji who hawks for survival said her landlord of the wooden kiosk she lives in with her children has been hostile towards her because she refused his proposal to have an amorous relationship with him.
Before concluding the session with Koji, the Crime Check Foundation was able to give the young mother money to assist her to take care of the children. It is hoped that the public will donate more to the foundation so the woes of the 31-year-old mother will be brought to a permanent end.
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that while many were sitting back hopelessly during the nationwide lockdown, a group of homeless Durban men decided to sit up and start a vegetable garden to feed themselves. Soon the garden was large and prosperous - not only a source of food but also a source of income for the men, who spent their days nurturing the seeds they planted.
Now their dedication and commitment to their garden have paid off massively. The innovative homeless men have been turned into working-class businessmen after receiving a huge contract to supply vegetables to Boxer Superstores.
According to reports, they will be supplying Boxer with spinach, tomatoes and peppers; it is a bright start for the men, who started off their farm only hoping to feed themselves during a hard time.
