Grundet situationen med Covid 19 er foreningens arbejde ind til videre blevet stillet i bero og vi afventer hvordan tingene udvikler sig. Den hjemlige danske sekretær Karl Peter har dog stadig kontakt til folk i Akwamufie og her er hvad de skriver om situationen:
Først Samuel. A. Otchere der igennem alle årene har været en fast partner i Akwamufie og som er tilknyttet Odenehos stab af medarbejdere. Samuel er p.t. udstationeret i Wa i det nordlige Ghana.
“On Kwaku Owusu the deaf student has finally completed school as reported earlier and he is now back in Akwamufie. He was given the equipments for the barbering (find attached) as a set up for his work. We are now planning to have place for him for the Barbering work.
On Many Philip the blind student also completed Junior High School early this year and I have requested from him to send his results or Academic performance report to me for me to forward it to you but all has proven futile. He is now in Accra as he informed me when I called.
On Gyamea Akosua the deaf student who have birth is also in the house nurturing the almost 2year baby. Her plan is to go back to school or enter into Apprenticeship in Hairdressing.
Life in Wa is also cool as am having a new life working in a University in the Upper West Region of Ghana. Academic work will end in 23-07-2021 and will be reporting back in September, 2021. Though life is a little bit tough but we are managing. We are in examination writing week that is why I delayed a bit.
Please find attached the graduation pictures.”

Dernæst en kort rapport fra Amadi Emmanuel Ansah der er tilknyttet skolen i Akwamufie
“Though there are a few transformation but not that much to make lost in the town.
The school is very much alive. Teachers are working and students are learning. More to do academically though.
The blue structure with the school children is the Kinder Garden, the brown and cream colors is the Junior High School and the blue and white is the Primary School. There is another blue and a white structure with the logo of Volta River Estate Limited is a canteen built by the said company for the school.”
Best regards from Amadi
Til sidst en kort rapport fra Nana Osei Bonsu Hyeaman, den unge herre der mestrer kunsten at yde ”appelation” for fornemme personer, dvs at rose dem i offentlighedens åsyn og påhør:
“Well, Akwamufie is still enjoying peace as usual. The global pandemic has affected most Ghanaians of which natives of Akwamufie are not exception. There has not been any big cultural
festival due to Covid. People are moving on with their farming activities. With regards to the school, a nongovernmental organisation (Pencils of Promise) is building a Kindergarten Block and toilet facility for the school children and it about 80% completed. Volta River Estate Limited( a company on the Akwamu land) has also built a canteen for the school children. It was handed over to us last week and we are yet to start using it.
The challenge as of now, is with our ICT lab. No computers available; making teaching of the subject very difficult.
Results of the the previous candidates are out. They all passed and they are all in Senior High Schools of their choices.”
Best regards from Osei.
Foreningen vil løbende holde kontakten til Akwamufie og vi overvejer i øjeblikket hvordan foreningens få aktiver bedst muligt kan komme befolkningen i Akwamufie til gode.
En stor tak skal lyde for de bidrag vi har modtaget fra medlemmer og bekendte af foreningen
Man er selvfølgelig altid velkommen til at reklamere for vores lille forening ved at dele vore opslag på Facebook samt foreningens hjemmeside: www.akwuamu.dk
Næste foreningsmeddelelse vil blive udsendt i December 2021.
Med venlig hilsen
