Much is expected from the person who has more and Ghana’s Vice-President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia lived up to this when he began the year 2020 putting smiles on the faces of lepers and street children in Accra.
Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia enabled the joyful moment for cured lepers, who were drawn from the Cape Coast and Weija Leprosariums, while the street children were selected from the Soup Kitchen run by Christ the King Catholic Church.
''My family together with some friends and I started 2020 by hosting cured lepers, drawn from the Cape Coast and Weija Leprosariums, and the street children from the Soup Kitchen run by Christ the King at our residence in Accra,'' a post on Dr. Bawumia's verified Facebook page stated.
Ghanaweb reports that the vice-president personally dished out meals to his special guests, freely interacted and also shared hearty smiles with them.

The new year party on January 1, 2020, was the second time Dr. Bawumia has shared such a happy moment with cured lepers at his residence with his family.
In December 2018, the Vice President and the Second Lady hosted over 100 cured lepers to a pre-Christmas party at his residence in Accra.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that Kertisha Brabson would be counting her blessing each day following a near-death experience after being in a coma for seven months.
31-year-old Brabson would not be alive today if it wasn’t for her mother who never lost hope that she would wake up again.
Her mother, Kertease Williams, brought her to the hospital in September 2018 when she noticed something wrong with her.
