Friday Born Designs Health Screening Day

Future of Ghana Alumni, Dr Emma Amoafo will be hosting a health screening day for adults and children in Branadi, a rural area in Ghana, West Africa on Saturday 22 April 2017 . As well as this,  she wants to install a borehole in the village to provide clean drinking water. Emma is  a UK trained doctor (GMC number 7494271) and regularly completes charitable projects in Ghana via my social enterprise, Friday Born Designs.

Dr Emma Amaofo and volunteer Ghanaian healthcare professionals will screen for high blood pressure, anaemia, and diabetes; and also calculate BMIs. They will then give educational lectures on how to prevent the illnesses that are being screened for, as well as others such as malaria, cholera and HIV. We also aim to be able to distribute anti-hypertensives, anti-hyperglycaemics, ORS, and simple analgesia such as paracetamol free of charge. Awinade is a hidden village with little access to free healthcare. I hope that this event will provide some medical attention to people who would have otherwise received none.

As a second generation Ghanaian , Emma am aware of some cultural attitudes that are detrimental to health; she hope’s to be able to dispel some of these through education. Years after I have left, the people of that village will remember our work as they use clean water from the borehole. This is Friday Born Designs’ fifth year of projects like this, and  she trusts that it will be the most impactful yet.
