The heartbreaking letter, shared on Facebook by Wendy Boatemaa Ofori, evoked the emotions of netizens.
''A class 6 pupil. He is in Accra,'' she captioned the letter, which gained more than 500 reactions.
Speaking to YEN.com.gh in an interview, Wendy Boatemaa Ofori disclosed that Simon's teacher sent the letter to him.
''His teacher reached out to me after he posted the boy's story on one of the pages, and someone asked him to reach out to me if he wasn't getting the needed help ...
''I asked him what it was about, and he said he had just taken over that class, and it was time to close when the boy brought him a letter and said 'Sir, can you help me type this letter?' The teacher said when he saw the heading he decided to take it home. It was after he picked the letter to type that he realised the story the boy was sharing with him ... He said the boy had been through too much. So, he sent it to me to help get the boy the needed support,'' Wendy told a trusted Ghanaian news media YEN.com.gh.
