Melania Trump has tea with Ghana's 1st lady, exchanges gifts

The First Lady of the United States of America, Mrs. Melania Trump, has arrived in Ghana today Tuesday, October 2, 2018 to start a four-country tour of Africa. "All in all, her visit is to aid us in boosting tourism as well as strengthen Ghana-US ties", he said. The mother of a 12-year-old son, child welfare is an important issue for Trump, who launched her advocacy initiative "Be Best" earlier this year.

Her trip is expected to include a bevy of visits to schools, shelters and hospitals while she focuses on the well-being of children.

The trip is Melania Trump's first major solo outing overseas as first lady. She is in Ghana to advance the cause of her "BE BEST" campaign targeted at empowering children.

The US first lady touched down mid-morning on Tuesday in Ghana's capital, Accra, where she was greeted by the country's first lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, and a young girl who offered her flowers.


The first ladies are meeting privately at Ghana's presidential palace, Jubilee House.

She accompanied Mrs Trump to the hospital where she donated a phototherapy machine, teddy bears and assorted baby items to those seeking treatment. She will head to Kenya, Malawi and wrap up the visit in Egypt.

The trip, too, can show the people of Africa they are on the Trump White House's agenda in a positive manner.
