Wall Art in the Paediatric Ward at the Dodowa Hospital

By | Dodowa, Giving Back | No Comments

On the 7th of July, a small team from NMSI office in Accra, spent their day at the recently opened Dodowa hospital for a special CSR project in the paediatric ward.  Tom, Francis and Cynthia, along with Adrian Crowley’s wife, Esther, and two young children, Oisín and Eabha, brought a little more colour to the ward by putting up some fun and decorative animal and “Thomas the Tank Engine” stickers on the walls. The artistic endeavours did not end there, with the pièce de résistance featuring a large jungle mural which is instantly visible as soon as you enter the ward.

We hope this will bring some fun and pleasure to the kids in the ward and will make their time there a little less distressing.
