May 9th Disaster: 20th Anniversary marked by Herbert Mensah & Team


Summary short_text

Persons with physical disabilities joined other sports fans and Ghanaians, in general, to mark the 20th year anniversary of the Accra stadium disaster that claimed over 126 lives after a soccer game between eternal Ghana football rivals Accra Hearts of oak and Asante Kotoko on May 9 2001.

According to Mr. Herbert Mensah and his team, the PWDs are a major part of the work of the charity foundation since they fall under a marginalized section of our society and they remind Ghanaians of the suffering of neglected segments of the society such as families of victims of disasters.

To mark the 20th anniversary of the stadium disaster this year, the team will also be granted audience with President Nana Akufo Addo who has been described by Herbert Mensah as ''the only President of Ghana who understands sports''.
