Member of Parliament for Mampong in the Ashanti Region, Hon. Francis Addae-Nimo has thrown a big party for the underprivileged kids of the Dzorwulu Special School to mark his 50th Birthday on yesterday, Monday, March 23, 2015 in Accra at the School Premise.
Addition to the assorted delicious, spicy and sumptuous meals served with chilled bottles of minerals and water, the children were also bestowed upon plenty of biscuits and toffees to make them have the feel of a great day.
There was a good music at the background which saw the kids on their dancing feets making merry and having fun to the fullest.
But that?s not the end of the show, The New Patriotic Party (NPP) big wig also made a personal cash donation of one thousand Ghana Cedis (1000.00) to the Management of the school to be used in buying teaching materials or aid for the school children.
In an interview with news men just after the party, Hon. Francis Addae-Nimo indicated that his inspiration to celebrate his birthday party with the kids is borne out of love and concern for the underprivileged in the society.
?I draw the inspiration from the fact that we need to show love and concern for this intellectually challenged young ones who are also our integral part of Ghanaian system and so upon consultation and discussion with my wife and other good friends of mine we chose to come to the Dzorwulu special school to share the joy of being a fifty year old man, a golden jubilee celebration of my good self with the kids of this school? he explained.
Hon. Francis Addae-Nimo also expressed his desire to reach out to other Children homes come this Easter Season.
?In fact I do dedicate this day to the children of Ghana, that?s why I came here. I will also be in my constituency during the Easter Holidays, there?s a children?s home also in my constituency and during the Easter Holidays, I will also be there to share with them and encourage them that we recognize their existence and that they are also part of the Ghanaian Society and whatever we are need to do, being government or non-governmental to help in their development so that they?ll also contribute to the society we will also not hesitate to do? he posited.
Meanwhile, Hon. Francis Addae-Nimo has advised parents not to hide children with disabilities in homes but rather find a way to bring them out to schools so that teachers can help train them to be somebody in the future so that they will not be a burden on society.
He however, warned the public not to look down on the physically challenged in society but rather support them with love and care as demanded by all and sundry.
The Headmistress of the school, Mrs. Veronica Sackey who received the donation on behalf of the school thanked Hon. Addae-Nimo for the gesture, wishing him a long life, good health, prosperity and above all a success in his political career.
