Adwoa Safo foundation to establish nursing homes in 16 regions

Member of Parliament for Dome/Kwabenya, Sarah Adowa Safo has revealed that her foundation would establish nursing mothers’ homes across the sixteen regions to take care of the aged mothers in Ghana.  

According to the Deputy Majority Leader due to biological changes that come with old age, most aged women are referred to as mad or witches and excluded from the Ghanaian society.

She further revealed that disable children would be given voice, by integrating them into the normal school system, and lamented over keeping them in special schools.

“Stigmatizing them is not the best, they have a right, research has shown that when, disable children are allowed to integrate with normal children they develop better and feel being part of society”.

She revealed this in an interview with journalists when she marked world International Day of the child on Friday and invited young female student leaders to her office to celebrate the day with them.

When sought to know if activities of her foundation would only be concentrated in Accra, she disclosed that, they would be in the sixteen regions with their activities.

“My dream is to continue with the good work of my father who has been a humanitarian, philanthropist and a farmer for so many years. The technological aspect of his life is taking the shine, but he started as a farmer”.

The Dome/Kwabenya lawmaker added that an entrepreneurship fund would also be established to identify young women to incubate their business to grow to become icons in trade, ICT and wherever they find themselves.
