Baagyei

Sponsors: P.Volkers from The Netherlands; N.N.; For Baagyei we are looking for €20 additional sponsoring per month.

She is born around 1995 and came to PCC in 2015. We first met her at Nkoranza hospital in 2014 and she looked no older than 14.  She was very small and barely able to communicate for herself and certainly not able to look after herself. Her father was a heavy drinker and other family members were dead. Baagyei was roaming the streets and the garbage dump, was sleeping around and not surprisingly became pregnant at some time. This ended up in a Caesarean in Nkoranza Hospital, where she gave birth to a son in December 2014.

Baagyei was not able to care for her baby, so initially a former PCC caregiver took up this care and Social Welfare urged PCC to take on Baagyei and so we did.

At the beginning caring for her was rather problematic. She had e.g. the unpleasant habit of smearing her faeces on the walls of the bedroom. Fortunately she stopped this since she was allowed to sleep very close to her caregiver! Baagyei is very modest and timid by nature and that is why she fits perfectly in the PCC House of Silence.

She has known very little warmth and happiness in her life up till coming to PCC. It is good that her nightmare is over, as she enjoys being here, smiles more often and gained a great deal since arriving at PCC.
