Barely a year after hosting Miss World 2011 Ivian Sarcos and the Miss World team in Accra, Ghana gets to once again host another delegation from the world’s most prestigious beauty pageant franchise.
Chairwoman of the Miss World organization, Julia Morley will lead an eight-member team including Miss World 2012 WenXia Yu, on a week’s visit to Ghana.
The team will arrive in Ghana on Monday July 15 and will leave on July 21, a day after the finals of the Miss Ghana pageant at the Banquet Hall.
They would be in Ghana to support the Miss Ghana Foundation’s charity projects in Northern Ghana, which includes construction of boreholes at the Nabuli and Leili Witch Camps.
They will also lend a hand to the Foundation’s infant maternal mortality projects nationwide, visiting the fourth floor of the maternity block of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, which the Miss Ghana Foundation is raising funds to renovate.
Miss Morley and her team will be in the Northern Region for two days, during which they will meet with the Regional Minister, the Tamale Chief and also visit the Tamale Children’s Home.
The delegation is also expected to pay a courtesy call on President John Mahama.
And to crown what should be an exciting one-week visit, the Miss World team will attend the finals of the Miss Ghana 2013 pageant/Beauty With a Purpose Charity Ball to raise funds for the refurbishment of the fourth floor of the maternity block in Korle Bu.
