You have read the biggest stories in 2015; it is now time to see 2015 in pictures courtesy award-winning photojournalist, David Andoh.

The biggest drug storage and distribution outlet in Ghana was engulfed by fire Tuesday morning in January 2015 . The facility belongs to the Ministry of Health

In Febuary, this child nearly drowned after he attempted joining his brothers for a swim. His rescuer noticed the boy struggling in the pool of dirty water and rushed to his rescue.

That brownish water in the bottle is not some maize-based concoction. And no, it is not beverage. It is alcohol gleefully being consumed on the day when Jesus’ resurrection was celebrated – Easter Monday. At the Kokrobite beach in Accra, Easter Monday was a spectacle of too much freedom for too many children and teenagers.

Demolition of Accra’s largest slum, Sodom and Gomorrah, left a mother here with a devastating look, helpless, hapless as she contemplates the next move for her young family. The demolition was triggered by the flood and fire disaster which claimed over 150 lives at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle a suburb of Accra

In our weekly photo of the week series, David Andoh captured these boys at the beach one afternoon at work on a week day and during school hours.

As decorated Peace FM presenter Kwame Sefa Kayi and co rushed into her house last Saturday to surprise her with a party, Joy FM’s Doreen Andoh couldn’t take the overwhelming show of love. Doreen Andoh was here when Multimedia began with Joy FM in 1995. It has been a remarkable journey of faithful service for the host of mid-morning show Cosmospolitan Mix.
