NPP's Addae-Nimo celebrates birthday with Dzorwulu Special School kids
Member of Parliament for Mampong in the Ashanti Region, Francis Addae-Nimo has held a party for kids of the Dzorwulu Special School to mark his 50th Birthday, which fell on Monday, March 23, 2015. The event took place at the school's premises in Accra.
In Addition to mouth-watering meals served with chilled bottles of minerals and water, the children were also given biscuits and toffees to make them have the feel of a great day.
There was a good music which saw the kids on their dancing feet, making merry and having fun to the fullest.
But that was not the end of the show, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) bigwig also made a personal cash donation of one thousand Ghana Cedis (1,000.00) to the management of the school to be used in buying teaching materials and aids for the school children.
Francis Addae-Nimo, after the party, told journalists his inspiration to celebrate his birthday with the kids was 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 50-year-old man,” he explained.
Mr. Francis Addae-Nimo also expressed his desire to reach out to other children's 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 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 [it],” he posited.
Meanwhile, Mr. Addae-Nimo has advised parents not to hide children with disabilities in their homes but rather find a way to bring them out to schools so teachers can help train them to be somebody in the future and so they will not be a burden on society.
He also cautioned 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 Mr. Addae-Nimo for the gesture, wishing him a long life, good health, prosperity and above all, success in his political career.
