She stated that Professor Liyuan created “Warm Children’s Hearts,” a China-Africa Joint Action to assist children especially children living with HIV across Africa.

“The Chinese Embassy and the China medical team have prepared a special gift for you: free health screening and love packages. I wish the children of Ghana grow up happy and carefree,” she explained.

The Legal Advisor and Strategist of the Rebecca Foundation, Sheila SakyiOppong, stated that the Motherly Love Foundation Orphanage was chosen due to the com­mitment of the first lady of Ghana, Re­becca Akuffo-Addo, towards eliminating paediatric human immunodeficiency virus, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) in Ghana.
