Actress Nana Ama McBrown is touching lives across the country by distributing wheelchairs to the disabled and aged who need her assistance.
This forms part of her Nana Ama McBrown’s foundation project supported by her family to give back to the society that contributed to her successful career.
To prove her love and readiness to support the disabled and the aged, Nana over the weekend sat in one of the wheelchairs which were imported in the country from the United State of America.
This was when the beautiful actress and her team donated a number of the wheelchairs to physically-challenged persons at the premises of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) off the Spintex Road in Accra on Easter Sunday.
She will be donating a total of 550 wheelchairs in Accra, Kumasi and Takoradi.
Chairs will also be given to individuals in Tamale and other parts of the country if she gets a request to do so.
Applicants therefore have to send photos of beneficiaries and their phone contacts or they can text their names and location to 0264362635.  The chairs are from Free Wheelchair Mission (FWM) Ghana, under The McBrown Family Foundation
Nana told NEWS-ONE that she was inspired to carry out a project like this by her grandmother who died last year.
“It is not just for the disabled but the aged as well. It is to help this group of people to be mobile like we can move out of our bedrooms to take fresh air outside or move about freely.”
“It was my grandmother who inspired me to do this. But she died last year. Sometimes when I go home and she complains to me, ‘see how everybody has left me at home alone’. So I discussed it with my dad. We bought her one but not long after she died. So this project was in the pipeline,” she said.
Nana said she was ready to support the disabled and was happy carrying out such a project.
“I just love that I can help everybody but I know it will take a lot of energy and time but I am ready. I believe it is my part giving back to society; it is my share of appreciating what people have done for me as well. I am just happy that I’m able to do this on a special day like Easter. I hope that everyone that receives it will be happy.”  
Nana is described as a versatile actress considering her delivery on the screens over the years. She is special to both Twi and English movie industries. She is one of the few whose footsteps are being followed by young girls and has a lot of movies to her credit.
