Fairway Supermarket donated GHS4000 to the National Radiotherapy, Oncology and Nuclear Medicine Centre at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital (KTH) in Accra in support of the fight against cancer. The donated funds was raised to support the fight against Cancer through the ‘Show Your Support By Purchasing Eco-Friendly Bags’ promotion held by Fairway Supermarket throughout February 2020 in Fairway’s Labone and Spintex branches in Accra.

The originally scheduled donation for March 2020 was delayed because of the coronavirus crisis. CEO of Fairway Supermarket Ms. Maya Ishmael said Fairway Supermarket believed strongly in giving back to society as a way to strengthen a mutual relationship which is necessary for true progress. Ms. Ishmael affirmed Fairway Supermarket’s commitment to continue supporting institutions as Korle -Bu Teaching Hospital.

Director of the National Radiotherapy, Oncology and Nuclear Medicine Centre Dr. Joel Yarney received the donated funds and expressed his grattitude for the kind act of compassion, which Dr. Yarney believed deserve emulation by others. Dr. Yarney observed that non-communicable diseases, notably cancer, continue to rise and that the centre was receiving more patients.  Yet, Dr. Yarney explained that the treatment of cancer can be complex and expensive and centre and its patients continue to face mounting costs of treatment. Benevolent support, such as was provided by Fairway Supermaket, is very helpful in helping fund treatment of patients.
