A family of three (3) blind children at Tanziri:Nyoli, has been neglected by their father in the Wa West Distrisct of the Upper West Region of Ghana.
These children who now lives with their mother Nyourwile Rose who is approximately 39 to 40 years old has her first child named Gloria of 16 years of age, the second child, Peter is 12 years of age and the last child Gordon is 5years of age were all born blind.
Speaking to the mother of these three,Nyourwile Rose ,she said “these children were born blind and they got abandoned by their father because of their condition, myself and their uncles are peasant farmers and sometimes have to carry garden sticks to the market to sell to be able to cater for the basic needs of these children. We make an amount of GHc 3.
Basically, the said amount she said is what is mostly used to suffice for a meal in a day which makes feeding, clothing and other basic needs of these children very difficult for them.
Diamond Foundation who paid this visit to these family in Wa -West is a youth oriented organization which was formed by three students from the upper west region in 2018 with vision of transforming the lives of women and children to fight teenage pregnancy and alleviate poverty among themselves thereby ensuring a better future for women and children in upper west region and beyond. it also aims at helping individuals mostly in the rural areas who lack basic social needs such as food, clothing etc.
