Reports available to YEN.com.gh indicate that a 35-year-old kidney failure patient from the Bole district of the Savanna Region has undergone a successful kidney failure operation thanks to a $24,000 donation from Mahamudu Bawumia, Ghana's vice-president.

Bawumia was in the area to interact with the Muslim community on Sunday, 2 June 2019 as part of his Ramadan tour and the family of Boresa seized the opportunity to thank him for his kindness.
According to Boresa, Bawumia first donated US$20,000 or GHC 105,000 through one of his aides, immediately the information about his health got to the vice-president.
Subsequently, the country's second most powerful politician added $4,000 of GHC 21,000 to the amount as pocket money when he was leaving for India for the treatment.
"For my health, I am highly indebted to Dr Bawumia," an elated Boresa continued.
As part of his visit to the area, Bawumia has also visited the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba district and expected to crown the tour with a durbar at the palace of the Overlord of the Gonja Traditional Kingdom, Yagbowura Tuntumba Boresa Sulemana Jakpa I.
