Advoa, Freda and Richmond, who work at Kingsbridge Private Hospital in Lisburn Road, Belfast, experienced a winter wonder earlier this week with the arrival of snow showers.
Ghanaian nurses looked as happy as children as they danced among the snowflakes, smiles across their faces and eyes closed as they felt the pure magic of it all.
In their eagerness to get outdoors and experience the white stuff, the trio didn’t bother with coats, dashing off to feel the snow on their skin during their break.

Nurses working at Kingsbridge’s new diagnostic and treatment center in the old King’s Hall building said they were delighted to see snow for the first time.
Adwoa Aninkora, 26, who has been in Northern Ireland since October 2022, said: “It was beautiful. It’s quite interesting when you haven’t seen something before.
“We missed the first session of snow that day, so when we heard it was snowing again we wanted to see what it was like, so we ran in our scrubs.
“I’ve seen snow in movies, but it’s so interesting to touch it.”
The climate of Northern Ireland is very different to that of Ghana which has a tropical climate.
“Back home we usually have sun most of the time – it rains, yes, but usually we’re warm,” Adwoa said.
“Northern Ireland gets a lot of rain. It’s usually windy and cold, so it’s a bit of a change from a tropical country, but you get used to it. I bought a lot of jackets.
Adwoa said he sent pictures of himself and his colleagues in the snow to his father in Ghana.
“I sent a post to my father. He had been to Northern Ireland before, but he was happy for me, his daughter, to experience the snow.
