On Easter Monday,I Joined the AME Zion Women on their visit to the Children’s Unit of the Accra Psychiatric Hospital.It was definately an Amazing experience.It was sad to hear the stories of these mentally ill children.

The parents of these children have dumped them at the hospital.I met a boy who went about hugging everyone.That was when I realised how much a hug really means for these children.All they need is LOVE!

I was happy to find out that they go on excursion and some of them go to school.A couple of them were locked up because of their condition but we got to spend some quality time with the others.

Grace Adjei-Twumasi,a nurse at the ward said that these children are very special.She said it is no fault of theirs that they are the way they are and that parents who have such children should not reject them.

She encouraged NGOs and individuals to volunteer at the ward and make a difference in the lives of these children.
She also cautioned parents who are hiding their mentally disabled children in their rooms to bring them to the hospital for help.

I hope you donate your time,money and effort to make a difference in the lives of these children.Here are some of the stuff you can send ;Daipers(very essential),water,bread,drinks,biscuits,toilet rolls,clothes,shoes,cups and detergents.

They need items but remember they need you more.

Get in touch if you would like volunteer and support in anyway..A hug means the whole world to these children.
