On his way home from school Kofi Mensah is confronted with a scene that sends him almost to tears—four adults carrying a seriously ill patient on a stretcher. Aware of the fact that the rugged road doesn’t get much traffic, especially at that time of day, and that the next available hospital is a good distance away, Kofi fears the worst for the poor man.
Kofi can’t stop thinking about this awful scene. In the end he writes to the President of his country, telling him about the pitiful experience and pleading with him to build a hospital in the area.
Does this letter reach its destination and, if so, does it achieve its intended purpose?
Seven-year-old Kofi Mensah, a Year 2 primary school boy growing up in the little village of Kookookrom in Ghana, helps his parents on Saturdays and during the school holidays by carrying out various activities on their farm appropriate to his age.
