First lady of Ghana – wife of President Nana Akufo-Addo – Rebecca Akufo-Addo is celebrating her 70th birthday today.
If there’s any illustration for “Black don’t crack”, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, born on March 12, 1951 will be the perfect choice for such an illustration.
As First lady, Akufo-Addo has been praised for advocating the fight of the disease Malaria in Ghana and has been recognized as a nutrition champion for fighting against malnutrition in children and adolescents, and outstanding contribution to women’s health and efforts against infant mortality in Ghana and across Africa.
In 2017, she established the Rebecca Akufo-Addo foundation, a non-governmental organization with a mission to enhance efforts of the government amongst Ghanaian women and children.
Happy Birthday to our ‘Mother Ghana!’.
