The visit was to introduce the new Queens to the CEO, and to strengthen the partnership between Exclusive Events, Ghana, organizers of the Miss Ghana pageant and National Blood Service, Ghana.

There is currently an existing Memorandum of understanding (MOU) between Exclusive Events, Ghana and National Blood Service, Ghana that engages every successive Miss Ghana Queen as the Brand Ambassador for voluntary blood donation campaign activities.

As part of her duty as a Brand Ambassador, the Queen is expected to promote voluntary blood donation at all platforms necessary, educate the public on the importance of voluntary blood donation at any opportune time, as well as encourage the Ghanaian public, particularly the youth,  to donate blood voluntarily on a regular basis.

In a brief interaction with the CEO, Inna Patty, Manager of Exclusive Events said as part of plans this year (2018), the Miss Ghana brand will do more outreach and advocacy programmes together with regular blood drives to support the blood service solve some of its seasonal blood shortage concerns.

She also indicated their readiness to collaborate with other brand ambassadors for the service, to ensure a sustainable blood supply in Ghana.

CEO of the National Blood Service, Ghana – Dr. Justina K. Ansah congratulated the Queens and expressed the Services’ readiness and continue support for the Miss Ghana brand in the campaign for voluntary blood donor activities.

The first blood drive activity by the new Miss Ghana and her team has been scheduled for February 24, 2018 at the Rawlings Park in Accra, during which more than 400 people will be expected to donate blood.
