Stuck in Ghana - Help us get home

We would like Mr Raab to help us get home, negotiate with commercial airlines and the Ghanaian government to let us leave the country.

Why is this important?

Hundreds of people are stuck here in Ghana, many have had at least one if not two flights cancelled, for which they have paid extortionate fees.

Ghana has closed its airports and airspace, leaving us Brits powerless to get out of the country.

The UK government urges us to get home, but how can we do this when the embassy just points us towards their social media pages (which have not been updated for days) and when we cannot get through to our airlines.

Until very recently, the FCO did not give any warnings about travel to Ghana, we have tried our best to get home, but our best is not enough and now Mr Raab and his actions are our only hope.

We appreciate this is an unprecedented global crisis, but the US has offered repatriation to their citizens who are in Ghana, why can't the UK?

As British citizens, we are asking you to please help us.
