WAM Campaign: Christmas in GHANA Pt 2

The Week Before – Part 1

So we are in Accra and are ready to start reaching out to people living in Ghana and on holiday in Ghana to see who would be able to spend some of their time with the kids in the school when we see a blackberry status update from one of the Team Members saying “Flight Cancelled!”

Okay, so we are sooo confused because every day in Ghana felt like a day trapped in a sauna. The mornings were greeted with the sound of those annoying cockerels and a wave of heat which a cool bucket bath usually helped to neutralise loool. But unbeknown to us London was having one of the coldest winters it’s ever had in 100 years with heavy snow storms. The team member informed us how their airline had rescheduled their flight to

WAM Campaign: Christmas in GHANA

DAY 1: The beginning – “Everybody hates Chris”

As you may be aware, Me FiRi GHANA went to Accra and Tamale to pursue their WAM Project; a Project designed to support and help develop the lives and opportunities for orphans and less fortunate kids in Ghana. The Project was established in partnership with the creative Ernest Simons and our youth Patron Fiifi Atta Mills.

But what is WAM all about? Well, WAM is an acronym which stands for “What About Me” and the slogan for the WAM Project is “What About Me? It’s Not about ME…  insinuating that we think about ourselves quite a lot of the time, but really need to realise that life is more than about ourselves, part of it is about helping others…

We wanted to blog from Ghana but time and some dodgy internet connections didn’t enable us to do so. Non-the-less, hopefully you followed us on twitter (@Me_FiRi_GHANA) and saw our #ilovemycountry tweets and pictures. If you didn’t, we are about to share and blog with you about the experience… (Please feel free to comment below 🙂 )

Pre Flight

From the moment we stepped off the plan and the hot air at Kotoko airport touched the back of our throats the journey was a madness. When you talk about taking a leap in faith or facing challenges in life that continuously try to hold you back, well that is exactly how the journey began!

So let’s back track to day 1 in London. Two of the Me FiRi GHANA Team jetted off on Friday 17th December from Heathrow at 22:46 but we almost didn’t even make it past check-in! No it’s not because we had overweight luggage (which one of us did but hey, it’s a GH flight). But one of us had a homer Simpson moment and forgot the pin number for our card to pay for the flight tickets (we reserved our tickets the Thursday afternoon before so had to pay for the tickets at the airport – last minute we know – imagine)

Homer Simpson

None the less, by the grace of God we managed to pay for our tickets using another card and we were
