In a visit to the bereaved family, Turkson’s mother narrated her son’s journey to his last breath. “Turkson on May 5, 2020 started losing his appetite for food as his breath began fading out. His condition worsened so I asked his younger brother to call an Ambulance to take him to the hospital. Whiles we were waiting for the arrival of the Ambulance I decided to clean him and in the process he was silent so I shouted his name which suddenly brought him back to his senses. I was trying to interact with him but he was not responding so I touched him and his body felt cold, at that moment he gave up his last breath.” The teary mother narrated.
The Executive Director of CCF, Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng expressed the Foundation’s heartfelt condolence to the family and sent a word of advice to believers to live uprightly. “We are only sojourners on this earth and we all will surely leave this planet one day. Life after death is sad so if an individual passes on, the most important thing is the place the soul of the deceased is going. If you live righteously your home will be Paradise but if you lived waywardly your soul will be sent to Hell as the Holy Quran postulates. We ask God to give Turkson Bentum a resting place in his abode.” He said.
CCF is appealing to benevolent individuals to support Turkson’s family to hold a befitting burial for their deceased loved one.
