Many young Ghanaians, over the years have made impact with their contributions to make society a better place for others.
Same can be said of Ivy Naa Odey Aryeetey, a 23-year-old nurse who aside her duty to save lives as a nurse, is also very passionate about charity.
She uses the Facebook name, Inaliana Naa Ivy and has shared a lot of photos of her kind works with YEN.com.gh.
The young lady has dedicated most of her time and resources to help the less privileged in society. Her acts of kindness have spread far and wide across the country.
She has touched the lives of the aged, disabled, needy but brilliant children, widows and anyone who desperately needed help to make ends meet.
As part of her contributions to make her community a better place, Ivy Naa Odey Aryeetey has taken it upon herself to help children in her community who cannot afford the cost of attending a hospital for checkup and treatment.
Her philanthropic acts have seen her visit many places in the country including Obuatunpang, Akwadum and Accra.
After the donations, she shares love with the people and poses for in lovely pictures with them.
Ivy Naa Odey Aryeetey’s contributions are going a long way to put smiles on the faces of the less-privileged in society and also providing hope to people in the community.
In terms of government's intervention to alleviate poverty, programs such the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) program is aimed at supporting deprived families and communities with financial aid but it appears not be enough to totally eradicate poverty in Ghana.
Other social intervention programs available are also the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) plus the school feeding program aimed at serving children with nutritious meals at school yet, there appears to be a gap in healthcare delivery in the country.
