“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” as the saying goes. Life is precious. Knowing this, one should take note that it is a good habit to conduct various medical tests to know if they’re healthy. However due to some reasons, people fail to do so. That’s why dedicated non-profit organization, Proffer Aid International Foundation (PAIF) has taken upon itself to organize free medical screening and other life-saving activities such as blood donation exercises. PAIF is a not-for-profit organization with the primary aim of improving the quality of health in communities, basically.
Holding groundbreaking successful programmes, namely Penyi Care, Gomoa Care, Blood for Yaro, etc., PAIF is set to storm Kibi. Kibi is a town and the capital of the East Akim Municipal district, a district in the Eastern region of Ghana. Kibi houses the Oforipanin Paramount stool which is the seat of the Okyehene, the paramount chief of the Akim people. Kibi is also the traditional capital of the Akyem Abuakwa.
The theme for this health outreach is “Behind a Smile.” In an interview with the Project Manager for PAIF, Emmanuel Arkorful disclosed “The striking factor that moves PAIF is the passion. Each member has the will to offer service to ensure good health of inhabitants.” He continues “this time we’re going to Kibi to offer free health screening which will encompass malaria, hepatitis B, blood glucose and blood grouping.”
The estimated turnout is 300 people and it shall be held in front of the Chief’s palace on Saturday, 9th June, 2018 from 9 a.m to 3 p.m. Proffer Aid wants to be the reason to make the people of Kibi wear smiles. Furthermore, they want the reason behind that smile to be knowledge of a healthy status. Meet PAIF this Saturday. Inform relatives and friends about this initiative. In perspective of this, intrigued people and associations who wish to support this altruistic and essential course may kindly contact PAIF executives on +233 (0) 277 168 404 (Abeiku) or +233 (0) 243 089 295 (Madinatu).
