A struggling mother of twelve children, Mame Panin, has been left overcome with emotions after she was given a cash amount of GHc1,000 (N66,811.44).
In a post on social media that throws a spotlight on the woman’s heaps of financial difficulties, Crime Check TV reveals that Mame has been struggling to provide three square meals for herself and all her twelve kids.
Crime Check reveals in the post that Mame ended up giving birth to 10 boys because she wanted girls at all costs. Now, she has twelve adorable children, including 2 girls.
However, providing for herself and the kids has been a daunting daily challenge. Mame recently received assistance in the form of cash from Crime Check.
Announcing the kind deed on social media, Crime Check wrote: ''When you need a baby girl at all cost and end up giving birth to twelve children. In Mame Panin's case, she has not been able to circumsize any of his ten boys because of poverty. The one thousand cedis donation was a shock to her. She wept. Life is indeed cruel!''
The post has generated dozens of reactions beneath the post on social media.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that when schools were closed in March 2020 following confirmation of the first COVID-19 case in the country, many children in Matopeni slums, Kayole estate, were left wondering what would happen to their daily meals.
The children, a majority of them from low-income families, were heavily relying on their daily school meals to survive as most of them are not assured of a meal at home.
Observing their hardships in life, a pastor from a local church started a feeding programme for the children.
Through his Faith Rescue Network, Pastor Steve Mbugua collected some contributions from other well-wishers and decided to feed the children on a daily basis.
"Some of the parents lost their jobs, even those who were their teachers are also struggling, some come from families where the parents are alcoholics, we even realised others have been surviving on their own and collecting food from the garbage," said Mbugua.
The man of the cloth said at first, they used to feed at least 400 children every Sartuday but that number increased drastically to over 1,000 as days went by.
