Awake Purified Drinking Water, a product of Kasapreko Company Limited (KCL) has made another donation of GHc70,000 to the National Cardiothoracic Centre, Korle Bu, exceeding its annual donation package of Ghc100,000 for the year 2016.
The company has this year made a total cash donation of GHc120,000 to the Cardio Centre to support economically disadvantage patients who cannot afford medical care for heart transplants, heart surgeries, and any other forms of heart disease.
Presenting the cheque to officials of the Centre at a short ceremony held on Friday, Mr Benjamin Owusu, a Lead Distributor of Awake Water said “We are making a cash donation of GHc70,000, the biggest so far of our donations. This amount coupled with our previous cash donations will amount to GHc120,000 for only this year, fulfilling our promise of making GHc100,000 donation to the Cardio Centre annually”.
People are diagnosed with some type of heart disease every 15 minutes and sadly many die every day.
According to Mr Owusu, Awake Water empathizes with “these patients, especially the children that is why we introduced the ONE4LIFE charity initiative, where profits from selling Awake Water, will be donated to the National Cardio Center. This will go a long way in helping the Center increase their assistant to patients who cannot afford to pay their medical bills.”
Receiving the donation, Dr Lawrence Sereboe, the Director of the National Cardio Centre thanked the management of Kasapreko for the donation and assured that “every donation received is accounted for”.
Dr Sereboe said so far six heart patients have benefited from the Awake Water initiative adding that their surgeries cost thousands of Ghana cedis.
Founder of Kasapreko Company, Dr Kwabena Adjei also gave the Centre a cheque of GHc10,000 which was the last tranche of the GHc60,000 pledge for the Centre within a period of six months.
