The vulnerable in society should not be underprivileged. There are so many needless deaths that can be prevented if everyone does his/her bit. Kwaaba Foundation helps the marginalized in society. In the area of health care, our efforts have been heavily centered around Blood Donation initiatives because we believe it is a cause that touches a lot of other causes and lives.
One out of 3 of us will need blood at some point in our lives. Surgeries have had to be postponed due to lack of blood. Every day, children and mothers in childbirth die as a result of acute blood loss. Cancer patients, accident victims, and other patients, need blood transfusion to survive.
The need for blood continues to be an issue worldwide and Ghana is no exception. As a country, Ghana has never met its blood requirement which is just 1% of the Ghanaian population (300,000).
By giving others the Gift of Life, the impact will go beyond that patient – touching families, loved ones, and society.
