Jenny, a teenage mother, has shared how her addiction led her to life on the streets. She detailed how she sells her body to men to afford narcotic drugs.
Jenny was discovered by some good samaritans who helped her tell her story, seeking solutions to her life-threatening lifestyle. In the video shared on Facebook, she reveals how she prostitutes to feed herself and her children and a drug-induced lifestyle.
“I hustle in the night. I sleep around to get money to smoke. I have been prostituting for about a year and some months. Sometimes, I go to Lapaz or look for customers in my area. The price depends on the person charging. I charge Ghc50 for short, including the room fee. The room costs Ghc5. It is for them to give you a condom and tissue in the room. It’s a temporal room for sex.”
“If business is very good, you can get about GHc600 cedis. I used to save but spent it all. I’m praying that I can stop buying cocaine. Three days ago, I got about Ghc350, but I have used it all to buy drugs. Sometimes I send money to my two children living with my mother.”
With regret, Jenny pleaded to be rescued from her current lifestyle. She begged fo support to help her clean up and lead a life worthy of raising her children.
“I need help to stop the drug because it’s affecting my life. Please help me with physical or spiritual help so that I can stop doing drugs, leave the streets and go home,” she begged.
Jenny is currently on her way to rehab.
