Being part of the KBNF family has been a dream come true for me. I joined the Foundation in 2003 as the Chair of Finance. That was the time that the organization needed financial direction and assistance in the registration of the two charitable organizations within the project, Korle-Bu Foundation and Excellence in Africa — Neuroscience and Health, Canada. With the help of our legal advisory and other executives, we were able to obtain registration within a year.
I am delighted in saying that with the little financial resources, the Foundation has been able to achieve great successes including several shipments to Ghana, sending a medical team on a medical mission to Ghana and Nigeria and also provide financial assistance in consulting projects in Ghana.
As one of the Ghanaian Executives on the Board of Directors and currently the Vice President of the Foundation and the President of Excellence in Africa, I can proudly say that KBNF is an answer to fervent prayers for God’s blessing for Africa and our health needs. We must be so thankful for such thoughtful foreign people who care.
It is my fervent prayer that God will continue to give Marj Ratel and the rest of my colleagues more strength and grace to live long to continue to support this project and to make all our goals and objectives come to fruition.
