Everywhere he goes, he tends to change the lives and environment of mentally challenged people. The story is being told of a middle aged man, Emmanuel Anobil, who has taken it upon himself to care for mad men and women on the streets of Accra.
On a daily basis, Emmanuel drives through town searching for a mentally deranged person to not only bathe but also clothes with clean, ironed outfits.
Caught on camera by GHOne TV, Emmanuel recounted how risky his job continues to be as he wins the heart and soul of several Ghanaians who often stand by and cheer him on as he gives these patients a good bath.
Mental health remains one of the most troubling health concerns in the country with the only psychiatric hospital in the city of Accra said to have ran out of logistics and medical staff.
Speaking to GHone TV, Emmanuel Anobil revealed that his only challenge remains how best to get access to clean water to help bathe these mentally deranged persons.
