The Ghana Baptist Convention took the lead in supporting the campaign by the Henry Djaba Memorial Foundation to mobilize the donation of a minimum of 16,000 wheelchairs to support persons living with disability across Ghana.

Executive President of the Ghana Baptist Convention Rev. Dr. Ernest Adu-Gyamfi led the leadership of the convention to donate four wheelchairs, four Walkers, two armpit Clutches, and three elbow clutches in support of the campaign. The donated equipment was mobilized from the Global Medical Aid in Denmark through the supportive efforts of Mrs. Amerley Ollennu Awua-Asamoah, Ghana’s Ambassador to Denmark.

Rev. Dr. Adu-Gyamfi commended the Henry Djaba Memorial Foundation for the laudable initiative to support PWDs to become mobile and live more independent lives. He assured the Henry Djaba Memorial Foundation of the Ghana Baptist Convention’s continuous support for the cause to help person’s living with disability to live dignified lives.

Executive Director of the Henry Djaba Memorial Foundation Ms. Otiko Afisah Djaba recieved the donation and thanked the Ghana Baptist Convention for their swift response to the foundation’s call to action. Ms. Djaba said nothing would stop her commitment to raise the targeted 16,000 wheelchairs to support persons with disability. She noted that these individuals were also citizens of Ghana and deserved to be respected and cared for irrespective of their social or economic circumstances.

Ms. Djaba appealed to the Ghana Baptist Convention for more support. She appealed to other faith-based organizations, religious institutions, donor organizations and philanthropic and public-spirited individuals to support the 1000 wheelchairs per region campaign.
