My name is Kumi Bismark from Ghana. I lost both parents through road accident at the age of 12 years staying with unemployed sister. I suffered a lot but didn't give up. What broke my heart was when some NGO came to my school looking for orphans to support and refuse to support me because I was looking very neat and gentle in my uniform.
As orphan by then I use to travel over 400 kilometers to the national capital Accra to carry building blocks and mortar at some construction site before I could survive and pay my school fees . I did this and some little support from my church members till I completed Senior high and nursing college. Now I'm a happy diploma nurse working with Ghana health service planning to move further.
