A midwife of Ajumako Kwanyako Community clinic, Christiana Nyarkoa has pleaded for a support for a son whose parent are mentally sick.
She said for days now, they discovered that the two year-old boy’s father always take him to the bush for hunting during the day and the night at Ajumako Kwanyako in the Ajumako Enyan Essiam District of Central Region.
The midwife was able to take custody of the child, taking care of the health needs but has no help with regards money to feed the child. She is therefore appealing to Non-Governmental Organizations [NGOs], Individuals and the Government to come to their aide.
The mentally sick father, Kofi Ntsie slept in a dilapidated wooden structure with the son. The man also confirmed that he always goes to hunt with his son during the day and the night since he is the only person taking care of the child.
Stating reason why the poor child has been left in his care, Kofi Ntsie said his family and wife have rejected him because he is mentally unstable.
The unit committee chairman, Mr. John Yamoah also confirmed that, they have been seeing him going to hunt in the night and during the day with his 2 years old boy.
