Afric Eeats Now - Sodom & Gomorrah
Sodom & Gomorrah - 31st July, 2015
A few weeks after the Accra floods, parts of the city had to be demolished to make way for a better drainage system. Sodom and Gomorrah, a densely populated hub for migrants from the Northern sector in search of greener pastures was one of the worse affected areas.
The area, teeming with head porters, locally known as ‘kayaye’, most of who are single mothers, has faced countless demolition exercises in an attempt to remove the inhabitants who are occupying the land illegally and is also considered one of the most toxic slums in Ghana.
Africa Eats Now overlooked all these cons and visited the ill named settlement because one of our core tenets is to love and care for our fellow man, regardless of their background. Realising the futility in providing food in an unhygienic setting, we embarked on an impromptu cleanup exercise before we began our free food project in the area.
The atmosphere was charged with excitement and energy as the lovely children thronged the distribution grounds to have a taste of the delicious meals we prepared for them. They kept coming in their numbers and we continued to feed them. The smiles on their faces were priceless as it indicated that we touched them in a unique way and we once again left the area feeling fulfilled.
