The Special Mothers Project an advocacy and awareness creation programme on cerebral palsy has donated items and an unspecified amount of money to Ms Golda Nunoo, mother of four special needs children
The donation was done over the weekend to coincide with the meeting of the Special Mother group where members shared words of encouragement and demonstrated love towards Golda and her children.
Ms Nunoo, made an attempt to take her life and the life of three of her children when a neighbour slandered her that she had given birth to “mad children” but for the intervention of Ms Linda Clarke, a member of the Special Mothers group.
In response to the love shown her by the Special Mothers Group, Ms Nunoo said she believes it is well with her soul.
Mrs Hannah Awadzi, Executive Director of the Special Mothers Project who presented the items to Ms Nunoo said, society should look for ways to enhance the lives of parents of children with special needs
“These parents are already going through a lot and the least we could do for them as a society is to show them love and kindness,” she said.
Mrs Awadzi called on government to implement policies that will enhance the lives of children with cerebral palsy and their families.
