Ghanaians urged to assist the physically challenged

mentalGhanaians have been urged to assist the physically challenged especially the mentally retarded to enable them to have a sense of belonging.  The Obonu Manye Naa Lartetsoo said this when members of the Russia Obonu Fun Club paid a familiarization visit to the Accra Psychiatric Hospital.  

She explained that most people who have relatives at the hospital have neglected them.  Naa Lartetsoo condemned the spate of drug abuse among the youth saying most of them end up at the psychiatric hospital.

The Obonu Mantse, Nii Larbi Dodoo urged parents to monitor their wards to prevent them from getting involved in social vices.  The Senior Principal Nurse at the hospital, Pastor Owusu Mensah, entreated Ghanaians to frequently visit the patients.   Members of the Obonu fun club also presented used clothing, fruits and toiletries to the inmates of the hospital.
