Over 30 Ghanaian children who have been missing from as far back as 2007 still remain ununited with their families as many of them were too young to describe where they had come from.
According to a documentary that was put together by award-winning journalist, Regina Asamoah in the Ashaiman Municipality of the Greater Accra Region, the kids have been kept together ever since.
It was also revealed the spate at which children are getting missing in Ashaiman is alarming as incidences of missing children are reported almost every day in the municipality.
See a snippet of the documentary below:
The documentary addresses the many mind-boggling questions of how they got missing, where they got lost, and how they ended up where they are.
What appears to be a silver lining behind the dark cloud of the children being separated from their families for years is the fact that they are kept growing in an environment full of love, care, dignity, and comfort.
It is, however, hoped that the families will get wind of this information and come forward to identify their wards and reunite with them.
Speaking to YEN.com.gh on what inspired the entire project, the astute journalist, Regina Asamoah, said:
I observed that desperate parents only relied on police extract as they move from one media house to the other in search of their missing children. In some instances, they are unable to pay for advertisements hence resort to posters on the walls while hoping they would one day find their missing child. So I decided to investigate further to know Social Warfare's role in the search of missing children. I focused on Ashaiman Municipality because through my investigations I found out that a day does not go by without a case of missing child being referred to Ashaiman Social Welfare and Community Development.
In another interesting report, a responsible and kind-hearted Ghanaian man identified simply as Mr Afful has been able to single-handedly save a man who was hit by a trailer and abandoned.
Narrating the story in the popular Facebook group, Tell It All, the victim whose name is Tyna Duamorson indicated that the trailer hit him from behind and landed him in two ditches.
When the incident occurred the morning of May 25, 2021, the trailer sped off but fortunately for Tyna, Mr Afful was on the route doing his usual morning jogging and witnessed what happened.
