Digital Postcard from Ghana

Can you believe its been 25 years since the 1st Red Nose Day?? I can just about remember the first one, I was still in school. It was a flurry of lipsticked noses and people wearing their clothes backwards.

This year Comic Relief are celebrating the good work that the past 25 years has resulted in. 3 bloggers are joining with the famous faces, visiting Ghana. They are visiting some of the sites that have been helped and sending digital postcards to us back home. Spreading the word and hopefully keeping the good work going.

Here is my digital postcard from mammasaurus aresidence and mummybarrow...

Hello Ojo!

This afternoon we visited a mental health self help support group meeting run by the Basic Needs Trust. Here you can see Bernard, Basic Needs Knowledge and Communications officer, translating for Atta Kwabena, a service user who is telling of how he was laughed at by  his community for his epilepsy.
This is a fantastic way to see first hand what wonderful work this charity has done, and if you click here you will be directed to Team Honk, where you can see all the other digital postcards that have been sent out.
I cannot emphasise enough how important it is to keep supporting these charities, for home and abroad. The mental health side of this is important to me.
It is thanks to many charities that I am able to manage and learn about my childrens differences.
 It is thanks to the generosity of others that my youngest has his special pushchair and iPad.
