Ghanaian Chamber of Commerce in Chicago Feeds Homeless
LISTEN JUL 14, 2004

The Ghana USA Chamber of Commerce will come to the aid of Women and children who are victims of domestic abuse. On July 17, 2004, we will feed the homeless an authentic Ghanaian meal, consisting of -Jolof Rice, beans, fried plantain, and chicken.

The Chamber has collaborated with the Ghana Nurses Association, which will conduct a free health screening at the shelter.

South West Women Working Together located at 6800 South Western is the hosting agency and the owner of the shelter. SWWT has requested that we share Ghanaian rites of passages with the residents of the shelter. The explanation of this sacred traditional ceremony will be explained and demonstrated by the Ghana Women of Prestige; slong with one of our local chiefs, Kwame Ampofo, of GUSACC
