Health Education with the Manya Krobo Queen Mothers Association
As part of the Valentines day (chocolate day in Ghana) celebrations, we joined hands with the Manya Krobo Queen Mothers Association and provided some fun and inspirational interaction with some of the 1000+ HIV orphans and vulnerable children that are cared for by this organisation. MKQMA has been a partner with MoM since the very early days, and we hold them close to our heart. The AvTech girls, as always, shone, and Lydia told the children that with a bit of effort we can all make it.... regardless of our backgrounds - and she knows that more than most! As part of the fun and games we took the opportunity to get across some basic health concepts especially related to HIV and to Schistosomiasis, and we not only left each child with a packet of Pasta (courtesy of DFP) we also left them all with a little more interest in aviation and the ability to spell Aeroplane!
