The Vodafone Ghana Foundation has taken its free quality healthcare outreach programme, Healthfest, to thousands of Ghanaians in Tumu and Chiana in the Upper West and East regions of Ghana.

The two-day activity, which is one of the Foundation’s pioneering health initiatives, screened residents for various diseases including Hepatitis B and Malaria; offered free medical consultation and medical diagnosis; and gave free medications for specific medical conditions.

Speaking on the initiative, Ebenezer Amankwah, Corporate Relations Manager at Vodafone Ghana said:

“We are passionate about empowering the general public to access quality healthcare so they can effectively contribute their quota to national development. A healthy nation is necessary for the country’s quest to attain progressive economic growth and we are happy to be supporting in this drive.”

HealthFest is one of the flagship initiatives by the Foundation to deliver medical care and screening to Ghanaians across the country on an annual basis. Mr. Amankwah urged Ghanaians to take advantage of the programme to get free medical care.

Meanwhile, the chiefs and people of the Upper East and West Regions have expressed their appreciation to Vodafone Ghana for the timely medical intervention.

The Healthfest train had recently visited communities like Okroase (Koforidua), Savelugu, Alajo, Ashaiman, Glefe, Accra New Town, Tema New Town, La, Nungua, Teshie, Sogakope, Duayaw-Nkwanta and other communities in the country.
