Wheels in Ghana 2011 - update
After much hard work by our Wheels team in the UK and in Ghana, the container of wheelchairs was finally released from port and is due to arrive in Ho late tonight.
The team are now busy assessing the disabled people awaiting wheelchairs, and three of the team have gone to visit six people in a home for those with leprosy. Our seven volunteers are now getting ready for the challenge of doing eight days' work in the space of three!
The time in Ghana so far hasn't been wasted - in addition to meeting the President on their first day in-country, team member, Will, was able to speak to 5000 people at a convention, spreading our message of inclusion and raising awareness.
