Upbeat multiple award-winning Ghanaian artiste and philanthropist, Kwame Nsiah-Apau, of career name, “Okyeame Kwame” has received a United States Presidential Volunteer Service Award for an outstanding humanitarian effort.
The award was pinned on him on Sunday 19th March, 2017 in Ohio by USA’s immediate Ex-President Barack Obama, in recognition of his Hepatitis B campaign in Ghana.
The Presidential Service Award, the highest civilian honour is granted to US citizens and permanent residents for their voluntary community service towards development.
Starting in 2009, the awardee has in partnership with MDS-Lancet Laboratories spearheaded and funded the screening, vaccination, sensitisation of over 7,000 beneficiaries against the deadly Hepatitis B disease in his country. The cause, worth applauding lands him the recognition herein.
