A 60-year-old Ghanaian farmer with limited means by name Abena Donkor lives with and takes care of all her three children who have lost their legs due to leprosy.
In a short documentary by Adom TV on the life of the single mother, it was indicated that the children are Rawlings Ashan 25, Frank Ashan, 23, and Doris Ashan, 17.
The only girl, little Doris, has both legs amputated while her two brothers have one leg each amputated. With no wheelchair to assist in their movement, taking care of them has been a great chore for their mother.

According to the poor mother, leprosy has been with the children from infancy and has caused a lot of damage to the family including the death of their father Mr Ashan.
Abena Donkor who lives at Breman Esumanjura in the Asikuma Odoben Brakwa District of the Central Region mentions that she has had to sell her clothes and other personal belongings to make sure there is food on the table.
For about 10 years, the loving mother has always carried her children on her back whenever the need for them to move arises and that continues to be her daily commitment.

Dickson Maina, who is a resident of Kayole said he heard a commotion from outside of people screaming after seeing the baboon and curiosity got the better part of him that he climbed to the rooftop to see the animal.
In a viral video, once he was on the top, the animal came towards him and the man jumped off the building to evade the visibly hostile mammal.
Unfortunately, he fell on a wall made of iron sheets and onlookers started screaming hoping Maina was safe.
"The iron sheet cut my finger, and from the jump, and I also broke my arm and my face also sustained serious injuries," Maina said.
