When we asked the sexiest actress about her experience in this year’s conference, she said she’s learnt a lot more from the doctors and other patient groups from around the world. And for the fact that this year again JIF was recognized for it good works in Ghana and West Africa in general, it awareness video was commended and the actress cum founder of JIF was asked to translate the lyrics into various languages for the European (non-English and non-French speaking countries) world to benefit from the message it preaches.

The representatives were all given a task to go back to the various countries and try as much as possible to convince their politician to create a hospital or a center of excellence for their patients back home and by so doing, it’s perceived to attract international help. “If we have good facilities people can easily walk to a hospital and demand a CT scan or MRI on their kidney and lungs without the fear of it costing so much” Miss Sonia added.
