“The purpose of human life is to serve and to show compassion and the will to help others.” Albert Schweitzer.
Today, the Juliet Ibrahim Foundation (JIF), lead by Juliet Ibrahim, her mum; Mrs. Sarah Elizabeth Ibrahim and her sister Sonia Ibrahim made time out to put smiles on the faces of 5 patients with hronic liver ailments by donating funds raised from the annual JIF Charity Halloween party held in Accra on the 1st November.
Some of the beneficiaries have either one damaged kidney or two and go through gruelling dialysis sessions 3 to 2 times a week and may do that for the rest of their lives till they can get donors and raise funds for kidney transplant someday.
Whilst having a kidney transplant remains a dream for most of them , JIF still tries in their own little way to lend helping hands to people suffering from kidney related ailments by creating awareness through public service campaign, community and online education and also by payiny for dialysis treatments.
A treatment per day costs around 400 Ghana cedis.
While JIF helps some of these people privately, this donation was done ppublicly to show that every cedi raised at the Charity Halloween party was well spent. JIF does not have a minimum financial donation, even the smallest amount is appreciated.
