Miss Ghana Foundation donated $20,000 to Foundation of Orthopaedics & Complex Spine (FOCOS) Hospital in Accra.
The gift sums up the total contributions raised to cover cost of surgery for young Gifty Amuzu who underwent a successful surgery to correct a scoliosis diagnosis.
Gifty Amuzu could sit, stand and walk for long periods and also perform simple house chores. She plans to return to school soon and hopes to live her dream of becoming a soldier.
Chairperson of Miss Ghana Foundation Ms. Inna Patty, Miss Ghana 2018 Nana Ama Benson and runner-ups Ms. Laila Issaka and Ms. Elizabeth Maclean spent sometime interacting with children at the hospital who were receiving treatments for various spinal conditions.
Ms. Inna Patty praised Prof. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei and his team at FOCOS Hospital for their excellent work. She also announced the commitment of the Miss Ghana Foundation to sponsor the surgery of another scoliosis patient.
Prof. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei expressed gratitude to Miss Ghana Foundation. The beneficiary, Gifty Amuzu and her mother were present and also thanked the foundation for the support.
