Serving one’s Community by contributing charitably to improve it, is a noble cause. Dr. Sam Kwofie believes this passionately.
Thus, not surprisingly, Dr. Kwofie had an idea to raise funds, collectively, from the residents of African origin in the NCR to support a local Institution.
In September, 2016 he invited four prominent and active members of the African Community to discuss his idea. The Group fully supported the idea. Together, they committed to its implementation.
Present were: John Adeyefa, José Aggrey, Phil Baddoo, and Kidane Gebremariam.
The Group was expanded to include three other prominent Africans, Peter Lawrence, Yousif Makkawi, and Nzunaki Barbara to contribute their organizational expertise to the Initiative.
The Group looked at a number of local Institutions deserving of funds. After a meeting with Officials of CHEO, the Group unanimously decided to donate funds raised to CHEO. The key selection criterion was Children!
As a Hospital, CHEO’s Health Care Services touch the broad spectrum of residents in the NCR.
Hence our MOTTO: Children Are Our Focus!
