Facebook user, Francis Matey has taken to the platform to tell a story of an old woman whose children abandoned her in the village after moving to the city.
Read full story below…
“On the course of national identification Authority (NIA) which involves giving GPS (Global positioning System) address to all households,we visited a village called Takorase . We eventually meet this old lady called Maa Adjoa.
According to her story she gave birth to five children,three guys and two girls. These children of hers have grown and move to the big cities and never return.
The children never return even just for a visit since they left abandoned her living alone by herself. But looking at Maa Adjoa she still got lot of energy for various activities such as family, animal husbandry, and alot.
So i told her yomo(grandmum) I want to be your new friend? She happily and emotionally replied, my son am also ever ready to be a friend to you. So I told her come let’s have a picture together to symbolize a start for our fruitful friendship.
Lesson, please we the youth who visit the big cities for white collar jobs and leave our parents in the villages without checking on their welfare, please let’s try show some love and appreciation to them because FAMILY IS ALL WE GOT AND FAMILY GOT US TOO.”
Family is important.
