“It is not easy, we don’t tell our family the truth we are suffering”- Ghanaians living abroad reveals

Some Ghanaians living abroad have spoken out about the difficulties they face on a daily basis in their diverse communities outside the country.

As a result, despite the fact that people strain their backs working one to two jobs, and often even three, their efforts never seem to be enough since the systems steal what they have worked so hard to achieve.

Taxes, housing, and insurance, according to the respondents, were the most difficult aspects of their lives, with many having to work longer hours just to fulfill their financial obligations.

They claim that some have even had to sleep in parks due to their inability to pay rent, and they refute claims that everything is perfect.

With the exception of professions such as administration, legal office administrator, nursing, truck driving (including welding), masonry (including carpentry), and other similar occupations that are in high demand and pay well, achieving success in other fields was less likely and even necessitated the acquisition of a new certificate from an educational institution because certificates from Africa do not work in such places.
