Shocking: Mr. Berko slept one night and saw himself as disabled person in his dream only to wake up amputated.

The story of Berko is the most shocking news we’ve ever had. Berko is a native of Agona Swedru in the Central part of Ghana. Benabi Discovery met this young man at the Swedru Government Hospital as part of its mission “Discover Agona Swedru”. We made a turn at the hospital to provide help.

Then met this amputated man who was accompanied by 2 other women who happen to be his sisters, he was without a wheelchair and this was the main reason we decided to interview him. Yaw Berko told us his story shocking story. His story is part of our full documentary on “Discover Agona Swedru

He said…

It happened when I was nine years old. I slept one night and dreamt I was disabled, I wake up and saw it manifested to real life. My parents tried everything possible to heal me by sending me to medical centers and other places but couldn’t work.

We asked if he finds it challenging going about life duties and he replied, I’m strong and able to work, sometimes I get money and buy palm nut for orphans and those who have nothing to eat. I worked hard to raise capital to start up through the same farming.

Yaw Berko is a prolific farmer who cultivates, tomatoes, garden eggs, pepper, maize and cassava. He came to the hospital because of his sister who is in labour ward, he was told she had delivered and taught she will be discharged today.
