As part of his annual Hepatitis B free screening with this year’s edition slated for July 28, 2014 at Mantse Agbonaa in Accra, the Okyeame Kwame Foundation under the tutelage of Okyeame Kwame organised a mini event ‘Celebrity Car Wash’ on July 20, 2014 at the Cahaya Car Spa in East Legon.
The event which was under the theme “Eradicating Hepatitis B” saw several celebrities wash cars of people and raise funds to support his Hepatitis B project.
Celebrities that turned up for the event included Kwame Sefa Kayi, Naa Ashorkor, Raquel, MzVee, Flowking Stone, Nikki Samonas, Bola Ray, Kafui Dey, Choirmaster, Beverly Afaglo and Jessica Saforo Opare of Citi FM.
Others were Adjetey Anang, Sammy B, Delay, Ama K. Abebrese, Stephen Appiah, Van Vicker, Caroline Sampson, Elikem Kumordzie, George Armah Quaye, host of The Pundits on GhOne TV and others.
Okyeame Kwame revealed his foundation’s intention to include free vaccination of 1000 Ghanaians to the annual free Hepatitis B screening this year. But also considering that the cost of the vaccines are very expensive, Okyeame Kwame explains that “eachvaccine costs forty Ghana cedis even aside administration of the vaccines, the ordinary Ghanaian may not be able to afford this, and providing 1000 people with free vaccination has indeed raised the cost of the entire project for us. So we are organizing the Celebrity Car Wash so that we can raise money to buy the vaccines”, says Okyeame.
The Okyeame Kwame Fights Against Hepatitis B is supported by MDS Lancet Laboratories, MTN Ghana Foundation, Firm Bridges Communications, Verna Water, Wear Ghana, and Japan Motors. Media Partners include DDP, Viasat 1, GH ONE, Citi fm, Radio Gold, Live FM, Y fm, Daily Guide, Flex Newspaper, Spectator, Ghanagist, Ghanaweb, and Enewsgh.
