Awo Sebeye, a mother of three has given an account of how the children of a woman she took care of for twelve years burnt a will she left behind that made her (Awo Sebeye) the owner of her house.

In a chat with SVTV Africa’s DJ Nyaami, she explained that she was unaware of the will until the woman she cared for died.

"I took care of her for 12 years when all her children had abandoned her. But, her children destroyed it and told me I wasn't part of the family.

Sometimes, they beat me up while working. The children say I should move out by December but I have nowhere to go,” the 50-year-old woman said.

Awo added that she helps with house chores in the house and also washes clothes of others and scrubs bathrooms for a living.

"I am paid 15gh a day to wash clothes, scrub bathrooms. It is not enough but that is what keeps me and my family going,” she said.

Awo has three children with their ages ranging from 18 to 26. The first child completed the University of Ghana, Legon but has been unemployed for five years. The second had to drop out in level 200 due to financial constraints.

Awo would appreciate assistance to rent a place and also start a small scale business. Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated.
