Result-Based Management Practitioner and Development Strategist, Golda Naa Adaku Addo, has disclosed the motivation behind Bosren her haven.
According to her, after being diagnosed with cancer, she realized that human beings struggle a bit to define themselves and after the diagnoses, she was wondering where help will come from and felt “we only come into this life to suffer.
“Adulting is really stressful and difficult like we always say and I also figured there was a lot of support when the cancer was discovered unexpectedly. It was just part of a discovery from a surgery and there was so much happening that we needed to fundraise to support that, but the amount of help that flowed in in just two days was so overwhelming,” she said.
In an exclusive interview with Eunice Tornyi on e.tv Ghana’s African Women’s Voices, Madam Adaku Addo said, “A part of me feels it contributed so much to my recovery and my ability to heal. I decided to bring this amazing support back to Ghanaians in a more coordinated way because it makes a huge difference.”
She believes there has to be a physical space where people can find support, unquestionable, nonjudgmental support to find healing or anything that will distress them.
“I told myself that if I’m able to go through my healing journey whatever is left, I’ll want to put it into that physical space and set it up and encourage more Ghanaians to value their peace of mind and their mental health, and to know that there’s a space like this that helps,” she emphasized.
