As part of our Health and Medicine projects this year we identified a family, whose story is available on the website, that had multiple cases of Chronic Kidney Disease. With the knowledge of the costs involved the Foundation set out to raise GHS10,000 to donate to the family to help with Dialysis treatment as well as other ancillary expenditure. A total of GHS3400 was raised and all the donations as per the foundations promise of ensuring that every amount collected is donated was given to the family in a small presentation. We plan to have another event before the close of the year.

Our Goal for this year (2015) in terms of fundraising is to raise GHS20,000 as our initial investment (seed money). This will set the tone for future growth, as indicated all funds raised will be added to this investment ensuring every single pesewa contributed is secured for posterity.
The interest from the donations to the charity which is invested will therefore form the fruit which would be used for charitable activity.
We are beginning with GHS5,000 and we look forward to your assistance in achieving and exceeding our goal. Kindly look out for our fundraising event announcements on the site, we would ensure we give at least 2 weeks’ notice prior to a fundraising event.
