Miss Ghana 2013 (21)

 

The reigning Miss Ghana, Giuseppina Nana Akua Baafi on December 25, spent Christmas day with the Countryside Orphanage at Awutu-Bawjuase in the Central Region.

It was her second visit in months, after donating food items worth thousands of cedi on her birthday earlier this year.

And to make good her promise of going back, she chose Christmas day to spend it with the adorable children of the facility.

Miss Baafi and a team from the Miss Ghana Foundation, led by Inna Maryam Patty donated several items from Finatrade and Multipac Limited Ghana  as well as presented a cheque to the facility.

The team spent a greater part of the day with the children, serving them with a healthy meal, after which they engaged them in a counseling session.

Authorities at the establishment couldn’t hide their excitement at the gesture, and were full of praise for the queen whom they said, “is a living example of a selfless young lady’’ and the Miss Ghana Foundation with its ‘’vision of or positively transforming lives,”

GUBA Foundation Invest In Ghana’s Autistic Children

Our boys and teachers

 

Money raised from UK donations is helping the GUBA Foundation improve the lives of two Ghanaian children with autism.

The London charity donated £1,650 in October to the Autism Awareness Training Centre in Accra, Ghana. The money will be used to fund the education of two autistic youngsters at the centre for six months.

GUBA Foundation’s founder and ceo Dentaa Amoateng and head of PR George Ameyaw presented the cash to centre owner Mrs Quaynor in October and used the time to get to know the children a little better.

After touring the centre, the children welcomed the pair with a ‘singing through sign’ performance.

“The kids were a joy to watch and were so excited to see us,” said George. “It showed in their enthusiasm to perform what they had learnt for us.”

But much more needs to be achieved to support autistic children at the centre and dispel firmly held beliefs in Ghana about the condition.  The centre is in need of a sensory room, outdoor pool and outdoor toys, particularly soft toys all aimed at helping the children’s sensory development skills.

“We would love to provide longer-term support for these children so that we can assist them for a whole year and institute a scholarship scheme for others like them in the centre,” George added.
