TPMC SUPPORTS KIDNEY CARE PROJECT WITH GHC 13,000
Touchpoint Magna Carta (TPMC), a Reputations Management, Event and Media Consultancy, has embarked on a second health walk as part of efforts of supporting people living with kidney diseases.
The company organized the second edition of a 12.6km health walk aimed at creating awareness about kidney-related diseases, while raising funds for the Kidney Care
Project Dubbed: ‘The Hunt,’ the walk up the Aburi Hills was complemented by aerobics. Participants were also sensitized on how to prevent kidney diseases. TPMC pledged to support the Kidney Care Project with GHC13, 000, which is an equivalent of the average number of steps taken at the walk.
Clarence Amoatey, General Manager of TPMC, said the high cost of the treatment and the terminal nature of kidney diseases, make it a socio economic problem that needs urgent attention.
“Less than 10% of the thousands of people living with kidney diseases in Ghana are able to access quality treatment because of the high cost involved,” he said. “A session of dialysis is estimated to cost GHC260 and each patient is required to undergo an average of three sessions per week.
There is therefore the need to reach out to the numerous Ghanaians living with or at risk of developing kidney diseases.”
Last year the TPMC Team raised GHC10, 000 at the first edition of the health walk. The funds were used to offset the cost of a total of 53 dialysis sessions for five of the Kidney Care Project’s beneficiaries at the Renal and Dialysis Unit of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.
Joyce Effah, Founder of the Kidney Care Project, advised the participants to live a healthy lifestyle in order to prevent kidney-related diseases.
