Established in December 2017, the OKB Hope Foundation was founded by Mr. Osei Boateng because he saw a need that had to be met. Having grown up in Ghana, he noticed how members of his community rarely received medical care. It was suspected that many of the deaths and life complications in his community could have been avoided had they had access to proper healthcare. Running on the belief that health care is a human right, Osei founded the OKB Hope Foundation in order to empower patients in Ghana.
This foundation seeks to educate low-income communities in Ghana about the risk factors for health issues such as hypertension and diabetes and how these diseases can be avoided through lifestyle modification. Since its inception, the OKB Hope Foundation has partnered with physicians and medical students across the United States and Ghana in order to educate and perform health screenings for hundreds of people in Kumasi, Ghana. The goal of this foundation is to mitigate the rate of hypertension and diabetes across Africa.
Promote a healthy lifestyle in low-income communities.
Increase access to quality and affordable healthcare through education.
