First Lady receives an award in Maputo

First Lady, 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 forum since its inception seven (7) years ago. It was attended by African First Ladies, Ministers of Health, African Parliamentarians, Scientists, Civil Society Organisations and the HRH Infanta Cristina, Princess of Barcelona, Spain.

Mrs Mahama has been involved in charity and philanthropic work long before she became Ghana’s First Lady. She supports more than seven orphanages across Ghana, supports brilliant but needy students and was recently appointed Aids Ambassador for the H2H campaign against aids and stigmatisation.
