In 1990, Dr David Abdulai created the Shekhinah Food Program. As in every society, the mentally handicapped and the mentally ill are a fringe group
in Ghana. The problem is that they are often outcast from their families and so lose any means of existence. Under the food program, 200 people are cooked for each day in Dr David’s house. The Shekhinah team then
distributes the food to the mentally ill and handicapped pariahs throughout the city using the food-car. The costs add up to between 200 and 400 Euros per month for fish and corn.
Much is being grown on the
clinic’s land itself and the program is mainly run by Doris Abdulai.
