Lepers at the Weija Leporsorium have sympathised with Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on the loss of his mother, Hajia Mariama Bawumia.

Hajia Mariama Bawumia passed away on Monday in Accra, and in an emotional tribute to her, lepers at the Weija Leposorium observed prayers for her on Monday night.

The prayer session was led by Father Andrews Campbell, Head of the Weija Leposorium and retired Parish Priest of Christ the King Catholic Church.

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and his family have over the years, made the lepers part of their family by extending tremendous financial and material support to them, and other lepers across the country.

In addition to the support he offers them, the Vice President and his family often invite the lepers to their home to celebrate during festive seasons.

The lepers’ remarkable gesture to the late Mariama Bawumia, is surely a fitting way of commiserating with their friend, the Vice President, as he mourns the loss of his beloved mother.
