The First Sky Group, a prominent business conglomerate in Ghana, has demonstrated its commitment to healthcare by investing over GH₵32 million in providing free dialysis for kidney patients since 2016.
In addition to the significant investment in free dialysis, the company has sponsored successful kidney transplants in the past year.
Announcing these initiatives at the 21st Anniversary and Thanksgiving Service of The First Sky Group in Accra, Executive Chairman Eric Seddy Kutortse highlighted the group’s dedication to supporting healthcare and improving the lives of individuals facing kidney-related challenges.
He affirmed that the group is actively working towards establishing a kidney transplant centre at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.
The Chairman emphasized that a joint committee is actively working on the project, with the aim of completing the kidney transplant centre by the end of 2024.
This ambitious initiative aligns with The First Sky Group’s commitment to making a meaningful impact on healthcare in Ghana.
The 21st Anniversary and Thanksgiving Service, an annual event for The First Sky Group, was themed ‘The faithfulness of the Lord never ceases,’ drawing inspiration from Lamentations 3:22-23.
The theme focused on expressing gratitude for God’s enduring blessings throughout 2023 and the past two decades, even amid global challenges.
Mr. Kutortse, while reflecting on the group’s growth, attributed its success to the abundant grace and love of God.
He also emphasized the role of The First Sky Group in corporate entrepreneurship, contributing to job creation, innovative solutions, and wealth development.
