Embarking on a mission to alleviate the burden of medical bills on the less fortunate, the Vodafone Ghana Foundation’s Annual Homecoming Program has once again demonstrated its steadfast commitment to humanitarian causes. The Middle Belt edition, conducted from November 22nd to 24th, has successfully discharged 61 insolvent patients from key government hospitals in the region.
The compassionate initiative, which began in 2011, has been a beacon of hope for those unable to settle their medical bills, providing relief to over 2,000 patients since its inception. This year’s Middle Belt edition continued the tradition, focusing on government hospitals in the Western North, Brong Ahafo, and Bono East Regions.
This year’s journey commenced with the launch in the Southern Belt at the Tema General Hospital, cascading through Winneba and Keta General Hospitals in the Volta and Central Regions. The Middle Belt edition of the program extended its benevolent touch, transforming the lives of 13 patients at Bibiani Government Hospital, 37 at Asunafo South District Hospital, and 11 at the Abrafi Government Hospital.
