Awake Purified Drinking Water, a product of Kasapreko Company Limited, has donated an amount of GHC 75,000 to the Cardiothoracic Center of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.
The presentation to the Center was preceded by an impressive peloton which began from the head office of Kasapreko Company Limited.
The skilled team of cyclists rode more than 120 kilometers to deliver the GHS 75,000 cheque to the National Cardiothoracic Center at Korle-Bu.
Awake Purified Drinking Water, Ghana’s first charity driven water, has since January 2016 donated about GHC 600,000 to the National Cardiothoracic Center.
Kasapreko Company Limited through Awake Purified Drinking water is able to make such donations to the Center by the kind donations of customers who purchase the water.
With every bottle of Awake Mineral Water purchased, the company donates one pesewa to the National Cardiothoracic Center.
The quarterly donation is aimed at paying for the medical bills of patients at the Center who require financial support to fully pay for their surgery or treatment.
To help raise funds prior to the donation, the brand launched the Awake 5-second challenge on social media. This unique activity helped generate awareness and motivate many people to drink Awake Water to help heart patients.
Receiving the 8th donation since the initiative began, Dr. Innocent Adzamli who stood in for Dr. Serebour, Head of the Cardio Center expressed his appreciation to Kasapreko Company Limited and Awake Purified Drinking Water for sustaining their commitment to the center.
He also used the opportunity to entreat corporate bodies and individuals to follow suit and support the center to save more lives.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony, Mr. Chris Addo-Sarkodie Marketing and Sales Manager for Awake Purified Drinking Water indicated that, “The One4Life campaign was borne out of a vision of the group chairman of Kasapreko (Dr. Kwabena Adjei) and it is the commitment of the Managing Director (Richard Adjei), Marketing Director (Eunice Adjei) and the rest of the management team to ensure that the vision lives on to satisfy needy consumers who continuously patronize Awake water”.
The GHC 75,000 donation which was made under the “One4Life” campaign was in respect of contributions made in the first quarter of 2018.
