MWFAG and the Rebekah Awuah Foundation collaborate efforts to contain coronavirus.
Mental health is a specialized area where successive governments and other stakeholders have paid little or no attention to, more or less to provide support.
In the wake of Covid-19, the Rebekah Awuah Foundation an organization committed to the promotion of good health and wellbeing, skills development and girl child education has lauded efforts of health practitioners on the globe particularly in Ghana but believes Frontline workers in mental homes faces an extra burden and an arduous task of managing inmates with mental disorders and at the same time containing Covid.
Founded by a 2017 Fellow ,the foundation which has been keen on mental health issues and continues to spearhead substance abuse projects partnered the Mandela Washington Fellows Association of Ghana (MWFAG) to provide one hundred protective masks to some inmates as well as Psychiatric Nurses and doctors at the Accra Psychiatric Hospital – a major facility serving the teething population of Ghana’s capital Accra.
This kind gesture is to protect frontline workers in the facility as well as keep inmates safe. Francis Ntow of the Public Relations division of the Accra Psychiatric hospital committed to staff utilizing the masks for the appropriate cause and for the needed impact.
