We had two guest speakers on Saturday. Emefa Xorse Attiega spoke on nutrition and blood group diets, and Mabel Selby, of Axioma Read Self-Reliance Foundation, spoke on training and job placement for persons with disability. Both topics were well received and members requested follow-ups from the two speakers.
Sharecare Ghana is an association of persons including several children with autoimmune and neurological conditions. We opened a rehabilitation centre in 2014 to provide physiotherapy, speech therapy and education to children with disability in a community in Osu, Accra, Ghana.
16 of the children receive direct support and we are looking for funds for 21 more children who attend the centre. 10 of the children can go to school if they are supported.
The children have cerebral palsy, hydrecephalus, Down’s Syndrome and trau,atic brain injury and are between the ages of three and 16. They are all from very deprived backgrounds.
Help us raise the funds and please spread the word: https://www.gofundme.com/22mbsqw4
Thanks to “A Taste of Ghana” and volunteers from Korle Bu, we have started weekly physiotherapy sessions at our centre in Osu.
A speech therapy volunteer is also with us from Development Without Borders (DSF) for the next three months. Other volunteers are painting the centre at their own cost.
Looks like a very good beginning by God’s grace.
