“LittleBigSouls, UK,US,AFRICA ” a charitable foundation has donated items to over 50 mothers of the neonatal intensive care unit at the La General Hospital and Ridge Hospital as part of the first International Prematurity Awareness Day in Africa. Ghana-based Jamaican singer, Prince Mydas, a celebrity ambassador for the foundation joined the team to make the donations.
The group donated items such as t shirts, packs of beverages and boxes of bottled water and a lot more to the named Hospitals. The donation was part of efforts to support less privileged women and reduce death and disability of pre term babies. According to the Doctor in charge of the unit at La General Hospital Dr. Ameh, the move by the organization was timely as most of the mothers are from poor homes and usually rely on health officials of the hospital for support. She thanked the group and urged them on.
The group in an interaction with some of the nurses at Ridge Hospital NICU discovered the rate at which some mothers abandoned pre term babies, but were helpful that their support would encourage visitation from such mothers.

The first International Prematurity Awareness Day in Africa/ Ghana was successfully marked through donations to the hospitals, distribution of posters, fliers and hand outs to the public.
