The US first lady, Melania Trump, on Wednesday, October 3, completed a two-day tour of Ghana as part of her extended solo international mission to Africa.

Arriving at the Kotoka Airport on Tuesday, Mrs Trump was welcomed by Ghana’s First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo.

As part of her tour, Mrs Trump visited the Greater Accra Regional Hospital, popularly known as Ridge Hospital where she donated a phototherapy machine.

Apart from the phototherapy machine, Mrs Trump also donated hampers and gifts to mothers and children at the Child Welfare Clinic of the Hospital.

The second leg of her tour saw the US First Lady travelling to Cape Coast visit the Castle and also pay a courtesy call on the Oguaahene, Osaberima Kwesi Atta.

In Cape Coast, reports suggested, there was so much security that it led to a low turnout by the natives to see Melania.

Meanwhile, Mrs Trump has since left Malawi from where she will go to Kenya and Egypt to also promote her “Be Best” child welfare initiative.

The “Be Best” initiative was launched earlier this year to focus on overall child well-being, with an emphasis on opioid addiction and online behaviour.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the United States (US) Embassy in Ghana has announced the opening of this year’s Diversity Visa program for all interested applicants.

The Diversity Visa Lottery, also referred to as Green Card Lottery, is an annual program run by the US government to make Permanent Resident cards available to some persons.

Each year, over 55,000 persons from “underrepresented countries” who meet the basic eligibility requirements are issued with Permanent Resident cards in the US.
