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

The first lady saw how babies are weighed - they're placed in sacks that are then hung from a hook attached to a scale. She toured wings of the hospital and distributed gifts of teddy bears wrapped in baby blankets.

"We expect that the visit will also aid us in the various efforts that we are making to promote a number of tourism sites in the country".

The first lady's office has said the tour will be a "diplomatic and humanitarian visit" that will focus on her #BeBest campaign for "children and their well-being". 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. The awareness campaign is meant to focus on the well-being of children, including online bullying and opioid abuse.

The US first lady was welcomed by the First Lady of Ghana Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo with traditional drummers and dancers at the Kotoka International Airport in the capital, Accra.

She is in Ghana for her first solo trip.

Her son, Barron, did not accompany her on the trip.

Mrs Trump announced her visit at a reception for spouses of world leaders, held on the sidelines of the 73rd United Nations General Assembly, in NY.

Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah said the visit from October 2-3 will as well help strengthen Ghana's relationship with the United States.

"Did you say President Trump's wife just arrived in Accra?" street vendor Awo Yeboah asked. Trump clapped her hands and waved at a group of school children waiting for her at the airport.
