Miss World Team Visits Ghana

Julia Morley, Chairman and CEO and reigning Miss World, Vanessa Ponce de León have been on a five-day tour of Ghana to visit Foundation of Orthopedics and Complex Spine (FOCOS) Hospital and other projects supported by the Miss Ghana Foundation.

On Vanessa's first visit to Africa her first stop was a courtesy call on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Barbara Oteng Gyasi, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts at Jubilee House. The Miss World team spoke to the President of the Beauty with a Purpose projects they were there to support in Ghana.

These projects include the educational project at Don Bosco Technical & Vocational Training Institute in Ashaiman, provision of water project in Nabuli in the Gushegu District of the Northern Region and health project at FOCOS Hospital where they help cover cost of surgery for children suffering from scoliosis.

After the courtesy call the Miss World team headed off to the Don Bosco Technical & Vocational Training Institute (DBTVTI) to commission the girls dormitory block.

The Don Busco Technical Institute is the first Child Protection Centre for the rehabilitation of trafficked people in Ghana. Inna Patty, CEO of Miss Ghana and the Miss Ghana Foundation previously donated land to Don Busco and helped build a female hostel on the land.

Next stop on the tour was to FOCOS hospital. Vanessa said: "We saw kids fighting against scoliosis. This is the first time I get to see what this condition is about, I could have never imagined the damage it has on a child’s life. However there is hope, places like this hospital are not overwhelmed by it, they accept the challenge and take in as many kids they can. They have severe cases and by the end of the treatment they all dance, walk and sit...they get to experience what all of us take for granted."

Then it was off to Huni Valley in Western Region to commission a ten acre site for the construction of a Beauty With A Purpose Orphanage and Skills Development Centre.

The team were greeted by the Chief and elders and Julia Morley received the honour of being crowned as the new Queen Mother for Bosomtwi Tranditional area.

To finish the tour the team attended the Miss Ghana 2019 final and Charity Gala. Vanessa said: "I have been told that the level of Miss Ghana has been elevated and all these girls are just committed to their causes. They are intelligent, they have careers. They have been preparing for many months. So expect a good competition.”

Rebecca Nana Adwoa Kwabi was crowned Miss World Ghana 2019 and will represent Ghana at the 69th Miss World Final. The glamorous event was held at the Kempiski hotel in Accra on Saturday 6 July.

The 26-year-old student of Maureen Signature Institute beat 18 other contestants to win the crown.

Rebecca will now enjoy a year of appearances in her new role and will represent Ghana along with 130 contestants from around the world at the three-week festival and 69th Miss World Final.
