Vodafone Ghana Foundation, through its outreach programme – Vodafone Healthfest, has provided free medical care for over 500 inhabitants in and around the Appiatse community. This follows the devastating explosion along the Tarkwa Bogoso-Ayamfuri road, when a truck carrying explosives to a gold mine crashed with a motorcycle on January 20, 2022.
Beneficiaries received free medical consultation, counselling and medications for specific medical conditions.
Commenting on this initiative, the Head of Vodafone Foundation, Rev. Amaris Nana Perbi, emphasised Vodafone’s commitment to providing quality healthcare delivery to Ghanaians through its charity arm.
“Vodafone Ghana is committed to providing free and fair healthcare for individuals under its many initiatives, of which Vodafone Healthfest is a part. We are confident that our presence in the Appiatse community with medical practitioners from the Ghana Health Service will positively impact the community and improve the health of the residents after the unfortunate incident they have experienced this year,” he said.
On his part, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Prestea Huni Valley Municipal, Hon. Dr. Isaac Dasmani, expressed appreciation to the Foundation and encouraged Vodafone to continue reaching out to the Appeatse community with their timely interventions.
