To celebrate her 45th birthday, Ghanaian actress and TV celebrity Nana Ama McBrown enrolls 1,700 people for the National Health Insurance Card (NHIS) at Kwadaso, a neighborhood of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, on Sunday, August 14, 2022.
Mcbrown, who turns 45 on August 15 (tomorrow), registered 700 kids and 1000 adults.
Upon landing, the Kwadaso-born actress and her companions reminisced over and relived their formative years. She discussed starting her acting career and her time playing football, among other things.
The United Showbiz anchor, born Felicity Ama Agyemang, was greeted by a crowd of fans, including elderly women, some of whom had known her since they were children, as soon as her Lezus 4X4 arrived at the Beposo M/A Park.
Mcbrown waved at the throng and gave some of the elderly women hugs while donning a body-hugging wine dress, black sneakers, and a matching gold anklet.
Particularly the young people, she simply enchanted them. They practically jumped on top of one another to embrace and pose for photos with their idol.
With the assistance of her foundation, the McBrowns Foundation, and collaborators, McBrown served hot meals, provided beverages, and promoted the goods she promotes as a brand ambassador.
“This is part of my social corporate responsibility. This is where I grew up and it’s only fair and proper that I give back to my people,” she told Graphic Showbiz.
“Every two years, my Foundation does something new for the society. This time, I just want to register my people to have access to the NHIS card.
“It’s not expensive. It’s GHS 26 but its benefits are enormous. I have experienced it and I can testify. My NHIS came handy to supplement my bills when I had to operate on my shoulder which developed a fracture after a motor accident,” she added.
According to Mcbrown, she has made the decision to launch a personal campaign to attract many supporters of the card beginning with Kwadaso. She committed to completing the registration process and helping the less fortunate.
Mr. Isaac Asare, a Senior Manager in the Ashanti Regional Office of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), praised the actress for her kindness.
He claimed that a large number of people still lacked identification cards, a sign that many were still having trouble raising the money required to register.
Mr. Asare pleaded with other people and business Ghana to help those in their areas sign up more people for the card.
