The Executive Directors of ASK Ghana, Mawusi Srem Foundation and a Rep. from Waylead, Ms. Kerziah Sharon Adjagrah, Mawusi Srem-Sai and Joseph, respectively took turns to present to representatives of the Unit.

Advocates for SYNERGY & Knowledge sharing Ghana(ASK GHANA) and Mawusi Srem Foundation have organized a donation at the Pediatric Oncology Unit of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.

To crown the year, The team on December 31, 2021, as part of activities to create awareness on Childhood Cancer presented medical items including sanitisers, compressor nebulizers, examination gloves, oxygen regulator, pulse oximeter, a TV set among other things for use by the unit. This project was sponsored primarily by Waylead Ghana Company Limited and other strong willed individuals.

Given that the diagnosis of childhood cancer and cure is enhanced in high-income countries as opposed to low-income ones, Advocates for Synergy & Knowledge Sharing Ghana and Mawusi Srem Foundation are keen to rally support from stakeholders for the chances of Ghana’s kids being diagnosed promptly and treated.

Delay in diagnosis, inability to obtain accurate diagnosis, inaccessible therapy, abandonment of treatment, death from toxicity (side effects), and avoidable relapse all account for lower survival rates in low-income countries.

While support from the World Child Cancer, Rebecca Foundation, Lions Club and Carmel Antiseptic (Carex Ghana) have been welcomed, the Pediatric Oncology Unit of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital remains in need and require extensive intervention from better cancer treatment options, fund for impoverished parents to tap into for their ward’s treatment and creative things to take off the minds of the kids from the pain they endure.
