Ghana’s Second Lady Mrs Samira Bawumia, through her not-for-profit organisation, the Samira Empowerment and Humanitarian Projects (SEHP), has secured twelve (12) scholarships and free services for children needing special pediatric care abroad.

A number of qualified Ghanaian students are set to enjoy partial and full scholarships in two Indian universities.

Health professionals are also set to receive training to improve their skills, while paediatric patients recommended for treatment abroad are to benefit from free health care in a leading Indian Teaching Hospital.

Ghana’s High Commissioner to India, Mr Michael Aaron N. N. Oquaye (Jnr), made the announcement in New Delhi, India on Monday, 18 March 2019 at an event organised by the Delhi Chapter of the Global Organisation of People of Indian Origin (GIPIO) in collaboration with the Samira Empowerment & Humanitarian Projects (SEHP).

At a brief ceremony ahead of the programme, witnessed by Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and the Second Lady, Mr Oquaye revealed that Parul University is offering two (2) full scholarships, catering for tuition and boarding, to qualified Ghanaian applicants, while Crescent University is offering 10 partial PhD scholarships to deserving students.

Also, the Ghana Health Service has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Yenupoya Teaching Hospital for the training of Ghanaian health workers and the provision of free health care for paediatric patients needing special care abroad. The training is for fellowship training in sub-specialities in Medicine and allied health and Nursing to the level of BSc, MSc and PhD.

Mr Oquaye expressed the appreciation of the Ghana government for the opportunity to give further training to qualified Ghanaians, saying it is a reflection of the deep bonds of friendship between Ghana and India.

For her part, Mrs Bawumia expressed her appreciation to the universities and health institutions that offered the scholarships and free health services. She added that people in positions of privilege should be guided by Martin Luther Kings Jr’s quote - “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is; what are you doing for others?”

Mrs Bawumia is in India with Dr Bawumia for the 14th CII Exim Bank Conclave on India-Africa Partnership Project.
