Ghana Reinsurance Company PLC, the country’s largest reinsurer, has made generous donations to three institutions as part of its corporate social responsibility initiatives for 2023. The beneficiaries are Lifeline for Childhood Cancer Ghana (LCCG), the Ghana AIDS Commission, and the Students Financial Support Office at the University of Cape Coast.

The company presented cheques totaling GH¢189,000 to the three institutions at a special event in Accra, attended by representatives from each organization. The donations are aimed at supporting specific urgent and impactful needs in the areas of healthcare and education.

LCCG, which has been a regular recipient of Ghana Re’s support for several years, received GH¢89,000 to purchase five patient monitors and five oxygen saturation monitors. These devices will help improve the quality of care and the response time for children with cancer, who often face challenges in accessing treatment and diagnosis.

Ghana AIDS Commission, which appealed for help to register People Living with HIV (PLHIV) with the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), received GH¢50,000 from Ghana Re. This amount will cover the NHIS subscription for about a third of the current population of PLHIV, enabling them to access healthcare services without financial barriers.

The Students Financial Support Office of the University of Cape Coast, which also requested assistance for bright but needy students, received GH¢50,000 from Ghana Re. This donation will partly cover the fees for 12 students who were not captured in the scholarship scheme and who may not return to school the next academic year. Ghana Re hopes to rekindle the hope of these students who aspire to contribute to the development of Ghana.

The acting CEO of Ghana Re, Mrs. Monica Amissah, noted that the insurance industry depends on businesses and individuals who can patronize their services and that this capacity is derived from resources, including ‘healthy’ human capital. She said: “Accordingly, it is essential that as a player in the industry, we support institutions that provide quality healthcare and education toward the development of much-needed human capital.”

Ghana Re is a state-owned reinsurer, established in 1972 as the Ghana Reinsurance Organization, and incorporated as a Limited Liability Company in 1995. It operates in four African countries and has a network of global partners that provides it with the capacity to offer a wide range of reinsurance services for more than 300 clients across Africa. The company is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year with various activities and programs.

The donations by Ghana Re are part of its efforts to give back to society and to align with the national agenda of achieving universal health coverage and quality education for all. The company has also supported other institutions in the past, such as the University of Ghana, Legon, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, and the Ghana National Fire Service.

The beneficiaries expressed their gratitude to Ghana Re for its generosity and commitment to their causes. They assured the company that the donations would be used judiciously and effectively to make a positive difference in the lives of the people they serve.
