Dave Brown has very kindly shared some exclusive images of his recent trip to Ghana in support of Afrikids with The Velvet Onion.
In his recent interview with us, Dave recounted some of his Ghanian exploits to TVO: “I went and lived with a family in this tiny little district called Talensi-Nabdam and I was the only white boy in the village. There were about forty to fifty people outside the house every night dancing and singing in celebration of me being there… They gave me a Ghanaian name, Yentotah – which meant ‘a gift from God’…
“What I came away with most was an amazement at how these communities with relatively nothing; with a lack of food, running water, sanitary conditions, access to medicine etc were all so welcoming, caring, loving and happy. It blew me away to be honest. I cant wait to go back!”
