He explained, since its establishment in 2009, the Foundation has delivered socially relevant and impactful healthcare initiatives to various communities and segments of the Ghanaian society. In 2013, the Foundation spent a significant amount on key projects which are delivering sustainable benefits to Ghanaians; particularly in the health sector.

“We refurbished the Child and Adult Cancer Wards of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital. Additionally, Healthfest, our yearlong health initiative, continues to provide free quality healthcare to Ghanaians in the various regions, ” he added.
