Actress Jackie Appiah celebrated her birthday on Saturday, December 5th and to mark the occasion she held a donation exercise at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.
Jackie has been consistently holding donation exercises on her birthday through her Jackie Appiah Foundation.
This year, she renovated a section of the Sickle Cell Centre at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital’s Child Health Department, with the new centre named ‘Jackie’s Appiah’s Corner’.
Jackie funded the renovation of the centre into an ultra-modern daycare facility with fully furnished rooms equipped with televisions, air conditioners and beds and also a fully refurbished washroom.
The rooms are also designed with notable cartoon characters to grab the attention of children who will spend their time there.
Jackie visited the centre Saturday and presented it to the Hospital.
According to her, she recently lost a close friend to sickle cell disease, which is what gingered her to focus on the Korle-Bu sickle cell centre for her donation this year.
Jackie also celebrated her birthday with a cake and champagne with the kids at the centre.
