We have impacted over 8.5 million lives so far – Head of Vodafone Ghana Foundation

Mr. Amaris Nana Adjei Perbi, the Head of Vodafone Ghana Foundation, said the Vodafone Ghana Foundation has impacted the lives of 8.5 million people in the country.

He made this known at the annual review session with the media in Accra. The assessment provided a platform for the Foundation to take a look at its performance in the previous year and make plans for the year 2022.

Speaking to the journalists present, Mr. Perbi said in the field of health, education, technology, and the social sector the foundation has made a tremendous impact.

“The foundation supported thousands of women on the Rural Ultrasound Scan project. Another significant project is our Healthfest initiative where we have our health on wheels. So, we come into various communities that people wouldn’t want to go and live in, those areas that do not have access to medical services.”

“We go there and we make sure that we serve with our pharmaceuticals, the doctors help us to administer and also check the health status of the various people that we encounter,” he said.

He further said 24,000 students have benefitted from the e-learning platform the foundation launched.

He also made mention of the Kindred Partnership they launched last year. The partnership paved way for individuals or other entities to partner with the Vodafone Ghana Foundation in helping to make a positive impact in the lives of people. And the partnership supports over 20,000 young men and women.

Speaking on technology, he said, “We have also launched ICT hubs across the country in partnership with the Ghana Library Authority and we’ve been able to establish over four libraries in various communities in the past.  Furthermore, we are going to do more in this coming year with more collaborations.”

Clinical Director of Vodafone Healthline, Dr. Byrite Asamoah said his office will extend healthcare services to deprived communities. 

“We realize that there are a lot of communities that have health facilities that, should I say, the unfortunate side of health inequality in that they have deprived doctors. And they also do not have the health resources that would be probably if we find in Accra.

“So we’re looking to extend our services to them so that they can be able to at least call into the call center and have a doctor help them manage their cases. We feel this would actually help improve the health outcomes in those areas.”
