|Roselyn (R) presenting the items to a cured leper|
In an obvious departure from the traditional cake cutting and gifts presentation from family and friends, accompanied with the usual birthday party, Miss Roselyn Numarce, a resident of Ho Bankoe on Thursday, 23rd June 2011, decided to celebrate her 21st birthday with the cured lepers of Ho leprosarium.
Accompanied by her senior brother, Shakespeare and some friends, she donated items ranging from toiletries, used clothes, provisions, bags of rice and other assorted food items to the cured lepers.
Mr. Frimpong, the administrator of the Ho leprosarium and Mr. Nelson Atito, the Supervisor of the Cured Lepers Village, who received the items on behalf of the cured lepers, thanked Miss. Roselyn for putting smiles on the faces of the cured lepers through her donation, and called on other people to emulate the kind gesture of Miss Roselyn Numarce.
Some of the cured lepers who were present at the presentation were full of praises for Miss. Roselyn for remembering them on her birthday and prayed for God’s blessing upon her and her benefactors.
The Ho Cured lepers’ village was put up to home cured lepers whose families have abandoned them.
The village also has a clinic provided by the Cured Lepers Foundation, an NGO with joint sponsorship from the Bonita Foundation and Madamfo Ghana Foundations of Germany to cater for the health need of the cured lepers.
