Management of Tamale Children’s Home pleads for support to fence facility
Management of the Tamale Children’s Home in the Northern Region has raised concerns over the safety of the children due to the absence of a fence.
According to the authorities, the absence of a wall around the facility has made them an easy target for thieves and their premises, a grazing ground for stray animals – a situation they find worrying.
Speaking to the media, the Manager of the Home, Janet Boahemaa Ansu, also noted that the upsurge of kidnapping has heightened their worry, as far as the security of the children are concerned.
She further cited structural damages to the Home that need urgent attention.
“One of our biggest challenges is the deep cracks on the walls of the buildings and the way the Home is leaking, some roofing sheets have been ripped off, and when it rains, it is difficult to accommodate the children,” she said.
She is therefore calling on government and benevolent persons and groups to support them to erect a wall as soon as possible, for the safety of the children.
