In the wake of COVID-19, these are folks that have given a course, to ensure that, the "stay home" agenda becomes one without inconvenience.
You may think I like food, but I'm sure you are done with eating already, as I pray for time to draw closer, even as I happily break that fast.
Oh Ghanaian market woman, for your sake, we pray this life-threatening

Even when school children were still home, you have helped put smiles on their faces. Perhaps as part of activities earmarked for farmers day celebration, the organizers across the various regions, need to recognize and reward the services of these women, who will live no stone unturned ensuring that all citizens get readily available foodstuffs to purchase.
Your income is meant to take care of that broken home, that course fees, that hospital bill, to ensure the various households including yours, will not run short of food, thank you we say.
We pray God grants you the patience and wisdom to go through these trying moments .
