Music, dance as Mrs. Trump arrives in Ghana on Africa trip

Melania Trump arrived in Ghana on Tuesday as part of her first big international trip

The wife of the President of the United States of America, Melania Trump has arrived in Accra for a 5-day African trip.

Ghana's first lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, welcomed her American counterpart.

In addition to Ghana, she is due to visit Malawi, Kenya and Egypt before returning to Washington early on October 7.

Mrs. Trump also cradled an infant and declared the baby a "beautiful boy" as she handed him back to his mother.

First lady Melania Trump holds a baby as she visits Greater Accra Regional Hospital in Accra, Ghana. Several Ghanaians interviewed said they knew little about it.

She is expected to emphasize the health and education of children as part of her "Be Best" platform that she launched in May.

Melania said she was looking forward to visiting "four attractive and very different countries" in Africa prior to her visit.

Mrs. Trump's visit opened in low-key fashion.

The first ladies met privately for about a half-hour at Jubilee House, Ghana's presidential palace.

The Foundation has chalked lots of successes with childcare especially building a new Mother and Baby Unit at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in partnership with The Multimedia Group. She is in Ghana to advance the cause of her "BE BEST" campaign targeted at empowering children.
