Last night I watched a very harrowing documentary made by Sophie Morgan a disabled woman I interviewed a while ago when she was a contestant on a disabled modelling programme.
The programme 'The World's Worst Place to be Disabled' is about the treatment of disabled people in Ghana showing how disabled adults are kept hidden inside, chained up, and subjected to religious 'healing' by some very hideous individuals. That is if they are not poisoned as children by fetish priests who are paid for doing this...
On the happier side the programme featured an amazing man, himself disabled, who is fundraising for a school for disabled children. On his fundraising page supporter wall he welcomes donations for just $5 - that's about £3...
Have a look at the work he is doing:
If you can bear to watch the documentary it will be on BBC iPlayer for 17 more days from the date of this post.
If you can't bear to watch all of it then if you start it at 45mins in you'll see some more positive good bits including an interview with a 17 year old called Charles who I just wanted to scoop up and bring to the UK so he can fulfil his dream:
If you are reading this post after the 17 days have lapsed you can see Charle's in a video on the Ark's Foundation website:
