Prioritize the wellbeing of the less privileged - Mr Divine Boson
The cured lepers revealed that the stigmatisation from other Community members and friends is another worrying challenge they face and due to which no one is ready to get closer to them.
The Volta Regional Director for National Disaster Management Organisation(NADMO), Mr Divine Boson, has called on institutions and leaders of the country to prioritize the wellbeing of the less privileged in the various communities.
Mr Bosson was speaking at the Volta Regional cured Lepers village in the Ho Municipality of the Region where he made a donation to the cured Lepers.
According to him, the donation forms part of his birthday celebration where he has decided to make it together with them.
Speaking to the Soireenews, Mr Boson noted that, for the past three years, it has been on his heart to pay a visit to them but the opportunity was the problem so this year he finally deems it necessary to visit and donate to them just to put a smile on their faces.
He finally challenged all persons in leadership to adopt any of them by supporting them if possible every year or month.
He said, some of them have children who need to go to school but if the portions are not there, it means their dreams of becoming something in the future will not be realised.
The NADMO boss donated a bag of sugar, clothes, four cartons of soap and mosquito repellent.
In an interview with the beneficiaries, they thanked Mr Divine Boson for his kind gesture and appealed for more support and interventions.
According to them, there are many challenges they face even though they are cured of leprosy, notably, their families have abandoned them as an outcast without knowing if they exist.
The stigmatisation from other Community members and friends is another worrying challenge they face and due to which no one is ready to get closer to them.
