Rev William Tetteh Deku introducing some of the children at the orphanage home
The group who visited the orphanage could not withhold their tears as the director of the orphanage, Rev William Tetteh Deku briefed them about the rationale behind setting up the orphanage.
He said unlike other orphanages, the WAMM orphage home gives shelter to children with special needs.
Some of the children have autism, HIV, Hydrocephalus, hole-in-heart, virtually impairment among others were neglected by their parents because of their conditions, he said.
He said one of the children who has hydrocephalus has no hope of survival as doctors at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital could not do anything to help him.
“We did all that we could so that he will survive but the unfortunate they said there is nothing they can do to help him. So we are just waiting for him to finally go home,” Mr Deku said.
Little Angel (not real name) was seen in pain through the visit.
He said two of the children who were unable to walk because of their illness as at the time of bringing them to the home can now walk while those with HIV disease have started antiretroviral treatment.
He added that the other children were also on various form of medications.
