Ghanaian songstress Francesca Duncan Williams well known as Sista Afia has been signed as Brand Ambassador for Los Angeles, California based The Ph8 Foundation.
According to an official document obtained exclusively by Ghana’s Hub For Pop Culture & Urban Entertainment -www.nydjlive.com and signed by Mike Angel, CEO & Founder of the foundation, “Sista Afia has proved herself a worthy trustee” to expand the mission of the foundation in Ghana.
The Ph8 Foundation believes that Clean Water, Healthy Food, Quality Healthcare and an Enriching Education are not just basic necessities, they are human rights which everyone in the world can and must have access to.
In 2016, the foundation threw a big party called “Go for Ghana” raising enough money to complete 5 projects in Ghana.
One of the projects was building a computer lab with 14 laptops at a school called God’s Gift Academy in James Town, the foundation also provided the whole Academy with brand new school supplies.
They also stopped by James Town, Marie Louise Children’s hospital to provide the whole hospital with supplies, food, toys for the children.
Another place they went to visit was the Rehabilitation center to provide the challenged supplies. One of the biggest accomplishments was Confidence Complex Coins, is a children’s school in the village of Lamletse in Kumasi.
There are close to 600 people who live in this area, without access to clean sustainable water.
The men, women, and children, retrieve water from a local well, but that well is only 15-20 meters deep, meaning that the water not only runs out quickly but is also of a lower quality. It becomes a first come first serve basis.
Justin Arceo one of the PH8 Foundations Chairman traveled to Ghana 2015 and fell in love with the people, one year later he comes back with the whole PH8 team to complete these projects in 2016.
Sista Afia will soon embark on a number of workshops and a nationwide music tour to raise funds for future projects of the foundation.
