GRAFT Foundation to provide free reconstructive surgeries across Ashanti Region



The GRAFT Foundation has announced its upcoming mission to provide free reconstructive surgeries for individuals in need across the Ashanti Region, continuing its legacy of changing lives for over 11 years.

Scheduled to take place from May 31 to June 8, 2024, at St. Patrick Hospital in Offinso, the initiative aims to offer life-changing surgeries to 100 individuals, addressing physical deformities and enhancing overall well-being and confidence.

An array of anomalies, including but not limited to Cleft Lip & Palate, Macrodactyly, Hernia, Neurofibromatosis, and others, will be operated on during the mission.

To ensure comprehensive outreach, patient screening will be conducted from May 1 to May 4 at selected centers across the Ashanti region, including St. Patrick Hospital in Offinso, AGA Health Foundation in Obuasi, Hope Xchange Medical Center in Kumasi, and Presbyterian Hospital in Agogo.

Dr. Brainerd Anani, Managing Director of the GRAFT Foundation, expressed unwavering commitment to the mission, stating, “Our goal is not only to address the physical needs of our patients but also to restore their dignity and self-confidence. Every individual deserves the opportunity to live life to the fullest, unencumbered by physical limitations.”

He added, “As preparations for the mission are underway, the foundation invites individuals in need of reconstructive surgeries to participate in the screening process.” Dr. Anani noted that surgeries are free but prospective patients are required to present National Health Insurance cards.

Dr. Anani also called on individuals, philanthropists, and corporate Ghana to partner with the GRAFT Foundation in its journey of changing lives. Notable partners include the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints, Goil, Change Inca Foundation, GCB Bank, Ernest Chemist, Intravenous Infusions, Unicom Chemist, and Letap Pharmaceuticals, among others.

The upcoming surgical mission represents a testament to the foundation’s ethos of compassion and empowerment, having provided free surgeries for over 2000 patients and poised to change more lives.
