Ahaban GLF Mobile Shelter Program

Our first AHABAN MOBILE SHELTER PROGRAM kicked off on 5th August 2017 at Christ The King Parish Church. The program was sorely into Medical Screening(Hepatitis b & Malaria) and food donation exercise.

We had a total number of 61 kids for the medical screening with the help of our awesome medical team. The program started at 9:45 am with an introduction of what the whole exercise is about and word of encouragement to the kids by program coordinator Adwoa Darkoa, then proceeded to an opening prayer by a Priest and finally a short talk by one of the medical assistant.
After all these the screening started in sections, kids went through first section which was checking their pressure, weight and height, moved on to the next section which was taking samples of their blood for hepatitis b and malaria test, moved onto the next to check their sugar level and last but not the least checking their vitals, all these were recorded onto medical slips. After all the tests being taken the final stage was testing the samples to get results for hepatitis b and malaria.

Ahaban GLF Teams Up With Environment 360 To Fight Plastic Waste on World Environment Day

On the 2nd of June, five Ahaban volunteers embarked on a project with Environment 360 to sensitize drivers and their mates, passengers and vendors at the 37 Lorry Station about the need to separate plastic waste from others and the need to recycle as part of World Environment Day Celebrations. Segregation bags were also given out to the people for the collection of their plastic waste.

It begun with a word of prayer, then the volunteers were given instructions and divided into groups to speak to the indigenes of the station. The interest of our audience was great to the extent that they rushed off after listening to call their friends and colleagues to listen to the message we had for them about controlling plastic waste and its harmful effect to the community and the planet as a whole.

In the end, our audience gained much more knowledge of proper disposing methods of plastics and the volunteers were also awarded with the smiles and enthusiasm of their audience.

At the end of the program, Fan Ice Ghana refreshed the volunteers, along with Beta Malt.

Huge thanks to our volunteers that came to out to help and to Environment 360 for spearheading the campaign.
