This operation took place at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra 20 years ago.
The two identical twins, Lydia and Linda Awui, their parents, Eunice and Benjamin Awui and the Pediatric Surgeons who undertook the exercise, Dr. Appeadu-Mensah and Madam Benedicta Lasi paid a courtesy call on Mr. Rawlings yesterday to show their gratitude to him for taking the responsibility of saving their lives.
The duo who live at Odumase Krobo with their parents and old students of Akwamuman Senior High School presented some expensive native beads and a plaque of honor unto Mr. Rawlings.
The two sisters who were joined in the abdomen are bent to studying Medicine and are hopeful to save lives and give back what they were given unto the society to save more lives and contribute to making the world a better place.
