JOSELYN DUMAS, a TV personality cum actress, and her foundation, ‘The Joselyn Canfor-Dumas Foundation’ (JCD Foundation), on Friday, May 18, 2018, installed CCTV cameras at the Children’s/Pediatric Block of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.
On New Year’s Day, Monday, January 1, 2018, Ms Dumas, the JCD Foundation and her family organised a fun-filled party in collaboration with Think Mahogany Events (founded by Debra Jane) for the Children’s/Pediatric Block.
The purpose of the party was to bring the cheers of the festive celebrations to the hospitalized children and their family members who were caring for them there.
Before her departure, the actress, in a conversation, asked the nurses on duty what specific needs they had which she could help solve to improve their working environment and provision of care service for the children and their families on the block.
The Head of Nurses, Madam Agnes ???????????, expressed a great concern for the general protection of the block, suggesting the need for a better security system for the protection of all persons on the wards as there had been numerous reports of theft cases and asked for CCTV cameras to be installed there.
The JCD Foundation has successfully installed CCTV cameras and servers at specific vantage points in and out of the block, protecting their safety.
Professor Lorna Reney officially received the Joselyn Canfor-Dumas Foundation’s donation on behalf of the hospital management on Friday, May 18, 2018, and expressed how invaluable the foundation’s contribution to the hospital was as it would deter baby/child theft and nurse and baby/child-mother’s malpractices in the block as well as tighten their security, contributing to an improved service provision.
Ms Dumas, who has borne the cost of many surgeries for children, expressed her love for children and vowed to do everything possible to ease the discomfort of children on the block, as well as those underprivileged around the country.
She encouraged everyone to get involved no matter how small their effort or contribution is, just as the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said “we shouldn’t be spectators but citizens.”
She said she believes “it takes a collective effort of all of us to support the less privileged in our society, especially children.”
The actress, therefore, appealed to the public and all Ghanaians to help in every little way possible.
The Joselyn Canfor-Dumas Foundation, after offering a number of charity activities, continues to finance the education of smart underprivileged children around the country.
The foundation also spearheaded the widely known #Xcholera, an effective campaign organized a few years ago to eradicate cholera in Ghana.
