15-Year-Old Celebrates Birthday With The Korle Bu Cancer Unit
The wonderful occasion which was purposed to put smiles on the faces of children suffering from cancer involved sharing of foods, drinks, colorful balloons, books and playful toys to the children.
The celebrant, Efua, who is a Ghanaian based in the UK speaking to MoralNewsAfrica said her decision was inspired by her mother who educated her about humanitarian gestures.
She said upon paying her first visit to her motherland since her birth, coupled with spending her birthday during the vacation, she decided to celebrate with the children at the Korle Bu Oncology unit.
The mother of the celebrant, Madam Abena, shared that she nurtured her children to have the knowledge and virtue of helping others. Therefore, it was a great opportunity for them to exhibit the virtue with the Little Angels Trust.
The Little Angels Trust is an Organisation that supports children suffering from cancer with hospital bills and surgeries. The Organisation also occasionally within the year, pay visits to the children, share items and have fun with them.
The Little Angels Trust has over the years set up playgrounds at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Princess Marie children’s Hospital, Accra psychiatric children’s unit and the Mamobi hospital.
The PRO of Little Angels Trust, Isaac Appiah, said the vision of the Trust is to shift the minds of the children from the pains they go through as they undergo treatment. He said, hence the provision of playgrounds and play items to the respective hospitals.
The Trust envisions to include more hospitals to support more children and families in the light of giving them hope and inspiring them for life.
