Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Three life-long friends named Marie Johnson, Mary Hunter and Clemmie Felder who have turned 101, 102 and 103 respectively have celebrated their birthdays together at an Advanced Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, the three friends who are reported to have been close friends for several years were seated together happily as a table was set before them.
It is indicated that all three of them were asked what the secret to their admirable long life is and they implied that it was God who gave them the gift of long life. “There’s no secret what God can do," they said.
See the video below:
It is such a remarkable event to have three people who have been close friends since back in the day, all living beyond the age of 100.
One would wonder how they were able to attain the breathtaking ages together by virtue of where they lived or the kind of food they have been eating.
Even though these might be true to an extent, it does not downplay the remarkable nature of the story of the three close friends as there are other ways any of them could have passed.
Perhaps, as they themselves asserted, it is only an act of God.
In other news, Dr Fathia Kareem, a medical doctor who graduated from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in 2016 has been unable to further her education as she keeps getting denied of the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund).
The brilliant doctor currently holds the record as the single medical student who has won the most awards in the entire schools' history. In fact, she leads the second person by a whopping four awards.
According to Theghanareport.com, Dr Fathia Kareem had to forgo admission offers for Masters in Public Health at the Johns Hopkins University, two solid times as she had no means to fund the education and was always denied GETFund scholarship.
