Kidney Health International educates students of Osei Kyeretwie Senior High School

Kidney Health International (KHI) educates students of Osei Kyeretwie Senior High School. Over 2,500 students of the Osei Kyeretwier Senior High School yesterday, Wednesday benefited from a healthy kidney talk by KHI.

The KHI has taken upon itself to extend the celebrations of the World Kidney Day each year to launch a month long campaign of aggressively providing quality and accurate information about kidney disease prevention to organized groups.

To ensure that the youth get to know about kidney disease prevention strategies, the organization and its team of trained volunteers have decided to extend the campaign to Senior High Schools.

The Osei Kyeretwie Senior School had the privilege of hosting a team of volunteers from the Kidney Health International during their Wednesday gatherings.

The team took time to explain to the students that even though they were young, they are not exempted or in any way immune to having any disease, and that includes kidney disease, it was therefore important that they get to know about how to live healthy lives and thereby reduce their chances of having the disease.

The talk which was interactive saw the students actively asking and answering questions during the question and answer time. On behalf of the director and founder, Dr Elliot Koranteng Tannor, students who answered questions were given copies of “How to prevent kidney disease” the first book of Dr Tannor on kidney disease prevention. In a message delivered on his behalf to the students who filled the Hall to capacity with an overflow outside, Dr Tannor encouraged the students to focus on their studies and stay away from illicit drugs which could also damage their kidneys.

Copies of the book were also donated to the library of the school and were received by the Assistant Headmistress Mrs Juliana Krobea Asante. She, on her part thank the KHI for the knowledge that was shared with the students, and promised that the books would be put in the school library and that students would be made to read them.

As the world kidney day approaches, the organization hopes to reach out to as many schools, and other organized groups.
