PRAISE GOD!!! Remember The First conjoined Twins Born in Ghana? See How They Look Now.
On Monday, July 5th, 2021 news about new conjoined twins went viral in Ghana. It appeared to be devastating because these children needed GHS3 million to undergo surgery for separation. But Glory be to God the President of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo- Addo through the Minister for Health, Hon Kwaku Agyeman Manu came to the aid of these Siamese twins and footed the bill.
Their mother showed so much excitement and appreciation when Nana Aba Anamoah informed her of this good news.
In Ghana, a couple of Siamese twins have been recorded but the first conjoined twins were born in Somanya, in the Eastern Region of Ghana, in1999 to be precise. They were identified as Lydia Awui and Linda Awui.
It is said that the first President of the Fourth Republic, Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings gave the needed funding for the procedure.
Just three months after they came into this world these twins were separated at the Korlebu Teaching Hospital.
Accompanied by their parents, Eunice and Benjamin Awui, the twin sisters paid a visit to late President Jerry John Rawlings in December 2019 and gave him a plaque, and adorned him with beads to express their gratitude for his kind support.
However, it appears that Lydia and Linda who live in Odumase Krobo, have led a generally healthy life following their separation. The twins recently completed their secondary education at Akwamuman Senior High, Akosombo, and are aspiring to become doctors in the near future.
They have really grown and are looking very beautiful, thanks to God, their caring parents, and the late former president.
The surgery in 1999 is worth celebrating because the procedure spoke more of the technological advancements of our medical personnel during that period. “
