One of my New Years resolutions was to become more involved with philanthropic organizations that have a mission to make a difference around the world.

AfricanHealthNow.Org is dedicated to implementing initiatives  that improve the health and wellness of Africans in the U.S and the Diaspora.

I was thoroughly impressed by the passion and commitment of  the founder Nana Eyeson. She has a personal connection to the issues of African health as she had to deal with a family member with an illness in her native Ghana.  Non-communicable diseases that don’t resonate within the context of the American experience became a harsh reality for her during that time.

She was deeply inspired to act and with the help of 21 friends Eyeson was able to bring to fruition a health fair called Gift of Life @ Christmas”. The fair served some 300 Ghanaians where they provided blood pressure screenings, glucose testing, dental screenings and more importantly health lessons and one on one discussions on attainable healthy lifestyle improvements.

AfricanHealthNow.org believes that knowledge is power. Their  first priority is to provide access to education so that informed decisions regarding wellness can be made in every African household.

If you are interested in becoming involved with this amazing organization please contact Nana Eyeson at info@africanhealthnow.org

If you are interested in making a charitable contribution please send to all monetary donations to:
