She however maintained that, though she is currently based in the United States, she is hopeful with the help of her colleagues in Ghana, she can use her contacts and influence to the benefits of the children to increase their prospects in life.
Receiving the items on behalf of the delighted children, Mr. Paul Anaba, Founder and General Manager of Nyame Dua Children’s home, expressing his gratitude opined that the donation will go a long way to help the inmates at the facility and bolster their depleted supplies.
