Miss Tourism Ghana Princesses on Mother’s Day, donated assorted products to mothers at the Margret Maquart Catholic Hospital at Kpando in the Volta Region.
The Miss Tourism Ghana team comprising the 2018 Ambassadors, Princess Gyamfi and Diana Borngreat, and the 2013 Ambassador, Sumaya Hamidu spent the afternoon at the maternity ward distributing baby products by Ghandour Cosmetics to new mothers.
With the help of Lele Foods, they supplied all the women at the maternity ward with lunch and drinks.
After the maternity ward visit, the Miss Tourism Ghana Ambassadors spent time at two orphanages, Hard Haven and the Missahoe Palace Children’s Home all in the Volta Region. They refreshed them, played games with the children and also feted a group of Queen Mothers.
Expressing her enthusiasm, Miss Gyamfi said, “Every woman is a born star with the ability to influence those around her and those that come after.”
On her part, Miss Borngreat said the day which was celebrated in many other countries around the world was an opportunity to consider ways of improving the lives of women and children.
The Director of Events and Operations at the Miss Tourism Ghana Organisation, Mrs. Delphine Brew-Hammond, also said the day could not be a one day celebration, adding that they have to protect women and children from rape and dislocation, especially in war torn areas.
“We have to enforce our laws against girl child marriage. We had to be frank with our education on sex and reproduction. To truly celebrate our mothers, we must celebrate women every day,” she said.
Miss Tourism Ghana’s Mother’s Day trips were sponsored by Lele Foods, Max International, PGees, Mrs. Rita Bucknor and Family, Ghandour Cosmetics, Tang Palace Hotel, DaViva and the MP of Kpando, Hon. Della Sowah.
