The Foundation of Orthopedics and Complex Spine (FOCOS), will host its 4th annual fundraising dinner on Saturday, May 30, 2020, at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel, Accra.
Proceeds from the event will support needy patients with various musculoskeletal conditions, who are unable to afford their treatment. Over the past three years, the Foundation hospital in Pantang-Adenta, has raised funds to sponsor surgical procedures for over twenty patients whose surgeries have averaged between $15,000 to $20,000. Beneficiaries have returned to normal and productive lives.
FOCOS’s mission is to help address a growing, and often neglected burden of musculoskeletal diseases. Many people, especially children, from poor households suffer from clubfoot, spinal deformities and bowed legs. Adult patients with arthritis of the knee and hips, other infectious and rheumatic diseases also form part of the population in need of help.
Previous events have featured signatories like: H.E John Agyekum Kufuor, former President of Ghana, Dr. K.K Sarpong, Chief Executive Officer of GNPC, Sir Sam Esson Jonah and Dr. Rick Hodes, Medical Director for the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) in Ethiopia. The event has also hosted celebrities including Boris Kodjoe, US-based Ghanaian Hollywood star, Bisa K’Dei, Becca (award-winning Ghanaian singers) and renowned Ghanaian Poet, Chief Moomen.
Tickets for the event can be obtained at the FOCOS Orthopedic Hospital or can be bought online on the FOCOS Hospital website or Egoticket.com, beginning March, 16, 2020. A ticket for this year’s FOCOS fundraising dinner is GH₵800 for single and GH₵1,500 for double. It can be delivered at a fee if interested attendees call 0200000856/0246748481.
