British High Commissioner to ride from Paga to Accra to raise money for Korle-Bu

The topmost British diplomat in Ghana, Iain Walker, is set to embark on a nationwide tour on his bicycle to raise money for the Burns and Plastic Unit at Korle-Bu.

The British High Commissioner to Ghana, Iain Walker, has revealed on Twitter that he will be riding throughout the country on his bicycle to raise funds for the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital's Burns and Plastic Unit.

Walker's tour will take him from Paga to Accra in August 2019. In his tweet, the British envoy wrote: "In August this year, I plan to cycle from Paga to Accra. Covering 800km in a week, I want to see Ghana from a different perspective & meet people in their own communities.

I’m hoping to raise money for Korle Bu Burns & Plastics Unit. Will be seeking ideas as the plan develops!"

It would seem Walker's charity ride is also a way to sell off an image of the "friendly diplomat" just like his predecessor Jon Benjamin.

Walker, a self-described sports enthusiast, is using sports, an arena he may be well adjusted to, to reach out to Ghanaians.

For instance, on April 7, 2019, the British High Commission played a football match with staff of Citi FM. The high commission won by 13 goals to 1.

Meanwhile, in what is being described as a historic feat, a team of seven Ghanaians have successfully conducted a brain surgery in which they did not cut open the skull.

The historic feat at the private health facility in Accra was made possible after a two-hour surgery performed with modern equipment and computer software.

Daily Graphic reports that a minimally invasive brain surgery is a technique by which health workers safely remove brain and skull-base tumours through smaller and more precise openings that minimise collateral damage.
