On Monday, February 20, 2023, as part of the company's corporate social responsibility, the ladies of OLEA Ghana, led by Gladys Esi Kumi, Technical Manager, made a presentation to the founder of JEAD Foundation, Mrs Judith Ellen Awuah-Darko, in the presence of her board of directors.
JEAD Foundation is an NGO whose mission is to support rural women in need to cope with the challenges posed by breast cancer. The NGO regularly visits rural communities to provide breast cancer education, screening, and medical support to women with breast cancer.
OLEA shares this vision and believes that society has much to do to help women meet these challenges. After commending the members of the NGO for the good use of the funds received and the work done, OLEA Ghana pledged to make annual donations to the NGO to enable it to do more for women in disadvantaged communities in Ghana.
The ceremony was also an opportunity for the founder of the NGO to express her deep gratitude to OLEA Ghana for its support and the continuation of the 3-year-old partnership.
She said she was currently gathering resources to build a breast cancer clinic in one of the rural communities. This initiative has become necessary because people with the disease often feel uncomfortable travelling to hospitals in Accra for treatment. They prefer to be treated in their villages. She therefore appealed to OLEA Ghana and the entire OLEA Group to also support the clinic project.
