Lordina Mahama Receives Breast Cancer Award
The First Lady, Mrs Lordina Dramani Mahama, has received an award at the just-ended Forum for African First Ladies Against Breast and Cervical Cancer for championing, promoting and campaigning against breast and cervical cancer.
She was also recognised and commended for the enthusiasm she has brought to the Forum of African First Ladies Against Breast and Cervical Cancer and the support she has given the forum thus far.
The Director General of the Forum for African First Ladies Against Breast and Cervical Cancer, Princess Nikki Onyeri of Nigeria, praised Mrs Mahama for the level of compassion shown towards cancer patients in the short period that she has been the First Lady of Ghana.
The forum, which attracted first ladies across Africa, was adjudged as the most attended since its inception seven years ago.
It was attended by African first ladies, ministers of health, African parliamentarians, scientists, civil society organisations and Her High Royal Highness, Infanta Cristina, Princess of Barcelona, Spain.
Mrs Mahama was involved in charity and philanthropic work long before she became Ghana’s First Lady.
She supports more than seven orphanages across Ghana, supports brilliant, needy students and was recently appointed Aids Ambassador for the Heart to Heart (H2H) campaign against AIDS and stigmatisation.
