Open defecationOpen Defecation in the confines of Nyohini Children’s Home in Tamale, have compelled the authorities to limit the movement of the inmates for fear of attracting communicable diseases.

Mrs Augustina Quainoo, Supervisor of the home has therefore appealed to the public especially those who live around the facility to desist from the practice, since it can spread disease such as cholera and typhoid to the already vulnerable children.

She made this known to Ghana News Agency when Alhaji Ibrahim Sunday, a Member of the Ghanaian Neighbours Association in the United Kingdom donated various items to the home on behalf of the group in Tamale on Wednesday.

The items included bales of used cloths, toiletries and sanitary wares worth GH¢ 14,000.

“The pellet expands when it rains and the stench that emanate from it is unbearable to the extent that we cannot open our windows for fresh air,” she added.

Mrs Quainoo thanked the association for the support and appealed to other public-spirited spirited organisations and individuals to come to the aid of the home.

Alhaji Sunday expressed the group’s readiness to support the home by adopting some of the children to ensure that they get sound education.

“It is the conviction of the group to support the needy especially children, that is why we have…built a borehole for the home… We have other plans of expanding the support to strengthen this relationship,” he said.
