Beautiful Ghanaian actress Jackie Appiah has won hearts with one of her philanthropic acts by totally transforming a pediatric ward for Sickle Cell Patients.
In a video posted on Instagram page, Jackie Appiah disclosed how she lost a friend to Sickle Cell and how that has inspired her to help those suffering from the illness.
She also disclosed the pain and suffering Sickle Cell Patients go through and how they struggle to recover is what inspired her to refurbish the pediatric center.
In a long post , she wrote:”I am pleased to be here to hand over a new daycare center called “Jackie’s Corner” for children suffering from sickle cell disease. Sometime last year my friend Jo-Anne Badu lost her life to sickle cell anemia. It therefore touched my heart and also inspired me to embark on a project to refurbish one of the pediatric wards into a fun vibrant day care center. As we all know Sickle pain is a unforgiven pain and no one deserves to go through that pain. In my attempt to ease some of their pain, I have helped to transform one of the wards into a loving day care center for their comfort I hope it brings happiness and comfort to the children and also hope in their brief moment in the ward it would help these lovely children forget their pains. I hope this new ward gives them hope to keep living and keep fighting. I am honored to be here. I am privileged that I can smile and make others smile too. It is my pleasure to hand over ‘Jackie’s corner’ to the management of the Korle Bu Teaching hospital. Thank you for allowing me do this. God bless Ghana and bless us all.”
