Okyeame Kwame Foundation to screen 5,000 for Hepatitis B
Following the establishment of his Okyeame Kwame Foundation (OKF) in 2009, the sensational rapper has taken it upon himself to ‘fight’ and drive Hepatitis B out of the country.
As part of activities to mark this year’s World Hepatitis B Day, which falls on Thursday, July 28, the Kumasi-born will organise a free Hepatitis B screening for the public at the Freedom and Justice Park (in front of the popular Obra Spot) at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra.
The screening, he said, has the support of benevolent organizations and individuals, such as the MTN Ghana Foundation, the Ghana Health Services, MDS-Lancet Laboratory at Dansoman and the Theobald Hepatitis B Foundation, among other allied bodies.
In all, Okyeame Kwame is targeting to screen free-of-charge, an estimated 5,000 people, which thus would signify a marked improvement over the number of people he screened during his first outreach campaign last year.http://bit.ly/obHvzW
