The First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo has commissioned a 54-bed hostel facility at Korle-Bu, in Accra.
The facility will be serving children with cancer and their families as one major challenge is the lack of suitable accommodation for the duration of a child’s treatment, especially for those who travel from afar.
The facility, named, The Rebecca Akufo-Addo/GHAPACC Sunshine house, will be an abode for children receiving cancer treatment and their families.
According to the first lady, the patients and their families will have a safe, comfortable place to stay during their treatments.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on the Facebook page of the first lady, she said it took a while for her to complete the hostel because it was not always easy to find the finances to do so.
