Speaking about the event, the founder of the initiative, Bettina Piirong stated that;
Save-A-Life Project is a charity benefit event aimed at raising funds to help create awareness and reduce maternal and infant mortality rates in Ghana.
This event will as well engage Stake Holders, Individuals, Celebrities (musicians, presenters, actors, actresses, etc.), Pastors, Politicians, etc. to support this worthy cause.
Bettina also added that;
The wellbeing of society is directly linked to the health and survival of mothers and children. When mothers survive and thrive, their children survive and thrive. When both mothers and children thrive, the society in which they live prosper”.
This is why i think people should come in their numbers to support in anyway they possibly can.
