Firstly, I just want to thank everyone for your concerns and caring messages after Sulley got injured playing for the Black Stars last week in France. I am delighted to be able to tell you however that he is well on the mend and is almost back to normal now!
Sorry it’s been a long time since my last post, I have been so incredibly busy with different interviews and shoots, also trying to juggle sorting everything out for mine and Sulley’s new home in Ghana! I have been shipping lots of our belongings over to the new house and trying to decide what to send there and what to keep in Milan has been really difficult. I hope I get the chance to go out there soon and see our new place and also see how my school and the new kids that I met a few weeks ago are getting on!
As some of you might know, the 1st December is World AIDS Day which supports a cause very close to my heart. I have done a lot of charity work with kids affected by and infected with AIDS and HIV, so I really wanted to travel to Ghana this week and spend the day visiting some orphanages that work with these kids. Unfortunately, I am unable to make the trip to Ghana this time around, but I am planning to visit on the 19th December to make a donation to an orphanage in Somanya which I have extensively worked with in the past. I can’t wait to see the smiles on the kids faces! I am also anxious to know how they are getting on with school and just their daily activities in general.
Everyone please try to do something, no matter how small, to help raise awareness of AIDS and HIV on 1st December – even posting a tweet could bring one more person to join the fight against the disease.
