US First Lady Melania Trump touches down in Africa

Trump then visited child health facilities and met caregivers during her stay in the capital.

School children in Ghana were made to leave the classrooms and wave Ghana and USA flags at the Kotoka International Airport after her arrival with little enthusiasm.

BE BEST, was launched with "the goal of combating some of the issues that children face today by shining a spotlight on successful programs and organizations that teach children the tools and skills needed for emotional, social and physical well-being", Melania said last week.

Streets were blocked for her convoy to pass to the clinics and hospitals in Accra with Ghana's First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo to distribute toys and hold babies for photo moments.

Mothers at the hospital for her visit received gifts of teddy bears nestled in white baby blankets, personally handed out by the first lady, according to her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham.




There's an overall sense of skepticism that exists around her trip and her motivations-and rightfully so. Akufo-Addo was at the airport to welcome her.

The two first ladies than traveled to Jubilee House, Ghana's presidential palace, for a private meeting.

On Monday, FLOTUS departed from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland for Ghana, the first stop on her week-long African tour -and she put her best, leopard print stiletto-clad foot forward.

Commuters were caught on camera looking on without any interest in the First Lady as documented by Jennifer Jacobs, White House reporter for Bloomberg News.
