Invitation to KBNF Workshop

We are so very grateful for all of your support for our Korle-Bu Neuroscience Foundation project. So many lives and indeed, West African nations are being impacted by your support and a “kit of essential tools” to transform the health care landscape is being filled. Thank you.

As a charitable organization, we like to give back a gift to our supporters when and where we can. KBF VP Danny Moe, an international motivational speaker extraordinaire introduced the concept of Heart Power last fall at a corporate luncheon hosted by Diamond Delivery. So well received, we have since offered two distinctive workshops based on enriching our lives. Think of it as our giving a “Cadillac kit of essential life tools” each of us can use to enjoy over the top success and fulfillment in life and in business. . . . and for free. I for one, sure appreciate my life journey far more learning from these principles.

Here are just some of our participants’ responses from last month’s workshop:

“I really, really enjoyed the seminar.  It crystallized many things in my head and put thoughts into words. Can’t wait for the next one…  I’d like to bring some friends along next time”. . . . “I would like to thank you for enlightening us with your caring ways, looking forwarded to learning and experiencing more”. . . . “Once the next one is around I will most definitely have to bring more students, for hearing this information can enrich their lives and futures.”

Danny’s response: “The HEART POWER Bootcamp, sponsored by KBNF, was a joy to share. . . It is my sincere hope that the 4 Heart Power Concepts leads all to ‘Extreme Living and Achieving.’  If you are interested in UNCOMMON LIVING, join us for one of the next Academy workshops, DreamsWork 1 or 2 or Heart Power or indeed both.”

Danny says: “If life phrases like ‘Significant Success’, ‘Meaningful Purpose’, ‘Growth through Giving’, ‘Extra-Mile Living and Winning’, and being a ‘MVP’ (person of Mission, Vision, and Passion) are exciting to you, then this is a life changing practical presentation you must attend.”

DreamsWork Academy

The second seminar is DreamsWork Academy.  “If you agree that ‘You were BORN on PURPOSE for a PURPOSE’, this may be the workshop you have been waiting for.  If you want to FIND, FOUND, and FUND your GIFTS and DREAMS with FOLLOW THROUGH, this is definitely for you.”

“What are my Gifts?  Passions?  Personal Dreams? and Purpose Dreams?  What is the difference between Personal and Purpose Dreams?  What are the Clues to my Purpose Dreams?  How will they Make A Difference in the world?  How will they Make A Difference in my life? All these questions and more will be answered in this life changing Academy workshop.”

Congratulations to Miss Canada 2011 Tara Teng!

KBNF extends heartfelt congratulations to Fort Langley citizen and Trinity Western student Miss BC Tara Teng, crowned Miss Canada 2011 in a ceremony on January 29 in Montreal.

KBNF had the privilege of Miss Teng’s attendance and support at our fall fundraising events at Diamond Delivery this past October. Her efforts at carrying a bucket on her head African style demonstrated Miss Canada’s determination at succeeding at any task set before her.

Miss Canada is passionate in her commitment to raise awareness across Canada and the world to wipe out human trafficking worldwide. Women’s issues, poverty, and issues of social justice are also high on her agenda.

“Slavery still exists in every country in the world, and the total profit from human trafficking is second only to the drug trade…I am so excited for this new opportunity ahead of me,” Miss Teng said. “Not only do I have the honour and privilege of representing my beautiful home of Canada to the world, I now have a larger platform to speak from.”

KBNF trusts that 2011 will be a wonderful year for Miss Canada as she follows her dreams and passions to reach out to the world.

Equipment and Shipping News

KBNF’s 14th container shipment filled with hospital equipment and supplies sent to Benin City, Nigeria for their neurosurgery department at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, has arrived in Lagos and is in the process of being cleared from port, reports Dr. David Udoh, Neurosurgery Department Head, University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH).

KBNF is pleased to report that $800 in funds raised this past fall provided for the complete refurbishment of two superb ventilators by our KBNF biomedical engineers. These ventilators are replicate models of the UBTH surgery department ventilators that are currently in disrepair.  As a result, UBTH biomedical technicians and anaesthesiologists familiar with these models will put these fully functioning ventilators into operation immediately upon arrival. This will enable patients to be ventilated safely during their surgeries and post-operative period.
