Ghanaian Gospel musician, Celestine Donkor, has reminisced about the difficulties she has faced.
She recalled she was compelled to eat faeces some years ago before she was given food.
According to her, a woman she was working with subjected her to such inhuman treatment.
“I was serving people as a house help. So that was how I grew up. Living with different kinds of people formed a very important part of my life because I experienced different things at different levels.
“Some of the people I stayed with were very good to me. They took me in as their own daughter. There was no feeling like an outcast. And there were others who made me like rejected and less human,” Celestine Donkor revealed on Rainbow Radio.
She explained: “I lived with a woman in a compound house, helping her with chores. She already had a maid, so I was the assisting maid. One day after doing all the maid’s chores, she refused to give me food to eat. When our madam’s baby pooped in its diaper, she took off the soiled diaper and said I should eat the faeces before she gives me food. I was so hungry that I ate the baby’s faeces. I have never shared this because I feel it’s embarrassing.”
