Happy Independence Day Ghana

The stories of independence keeps ringing since 1957. The songs of our freedom is only a state of mind. We are not excited about taking feeding money from our parents at age 61. We are not excited about the health policies in Ghana. We are not excited about the broken health systems in Ghana. We are not excited about the poor access to quality healthcare in our rural communities. We strongly believe in the prospects of our youth organization to take control of the problems facing our country yesterday, today and tomorrow and we are looking forward to the Ghana we wished for. God Bless Our Homeland Ghana.
