This Summer the British High Commissioner H.E. Iain Walker is cycling 1000+ kilometres from the North to the South of Ghana to help raise funds for the Plastic Surgery and Burns Unit (PSBU) at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital: #TheGhanaGrand
The Ghana Grand is inspired by a genuine desire to effect a positive change. There are three areas of focus:
- Health. As Ghana continues its journey to self-reliance, health and wellbeing are crucial for empowerment. The UK has long partnered with Ghana in this domain and our medical experts have trained together side-by-side. We hope to meet many of these people who are doing extraordinary things each day to support the health and wellbeing of others.
- Tourism and the Natural Environment. Ghana is a beautiful, friendly, vibrant country with amazing people doing great things. Its warmth matched by the people’s welcoming nature. During this trip, we plan to celebrate the many things that unite the UK and Ghana: heritage, food, culture, music, values; and emphasise our efforts to get ahead of the challenges that affect us all: plastics, forest reserves and climate change.
- Overcoming Challenges. As the plan has developed, the “challenge” part has become increasingly clear! Cycling 1000km+ from the north to south of Ghana is one way to confront the seemingly impossible; and a way to inspire others to confront their own challenges.
