Parents and family of the girl, Harriet San-Koffie, from the Ngleshie-Amanfrom had been grappling with finances to pay for the surgery of the girl until Mrs Akufo-Addo came in contact with them and offered to pay for the full cost.

Mrs Akufo-Addo who met Harriet last year during a visit to Amanfrom, paid the cost of the heart surgery and the little girl has successfully completed surgery. A grateful Harriet and her family together with their Church pastor and elders have paid a courtesy call on Mrs Akufo-Addo to express their gratitude for the gesture which has saved the girl’s life. Mother of the girl, Mrs Mercy San-Koffie, who was grateful for the gesture said had it not been for the help of Mrs. Akufo-Addo, little Harriet would have died.

She said they sought help from everywhere but to no avail until they Mrs Akufo-Addo was touched by the her daughter’s plight and offered to help. Mrs San-Koffie asked for God’s blessings upon the First Lady and prayed she continues to help the needy in the society. Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo was joyous to see little Harriet with full of life, and asked for God’s blessings upon herself to enable her help other needy people like little Harriet.
