“You cannot quantify health. Once you donate, the first thing you receive is the health check-up to check if the donor has enough blood. They are screened for health-related issues and have their blood pressure checked as well so, the benefits, apart from the core value of saving a life, are endless”.      

The upscale hotel, located in Accra Central, undertakes blood donation annually with its team members under its strategic corporate social responsibility initiatives, drawing on the hotel’s mandate to encourage mindful sustainability and community welfare.

“Not only are we intimately involved in the lives of our guests, we are committed to the welfare of communities within which we find ourselves”, said Deborah Lee-Ann Sivertsen, General Manager of the Mövenpick Ambassador Hotel Accra.

“Seeing how these students have turned out for today’s exercise reminds me of what I was like back in school as well. They, along with our team members, are lifesavers and their desire to donate blood goes a long way to save the lives of friends, family and citizens at large. Making moments with those in need is always our collective goal”, she said.

Over a hundred pints of blood were gathered after the successful exercise and to thank donors for their generosity, goodie bags were distributed containing non-perishable foods, stationery and t-shirts from the hotel as well as the Ghana National Blood Service.          

The Mövenpick Ambassador Hotel Accra recently launched its 10-year anniversary celebrating a decade of ‘doing the ordinary in extraordinary ways’.

After the Ambassador Hotel, completely rebuilt under the global Swiss brand was reopened in 2011, it has remained a beacon of excellence in the hospitality sector of Ghana hosting several high-level delegations and events while maintaining their health and safety as a priority.

The hotel said it will continue to roll out a series of events leading up to the climax of the anniversary in November 2021, giving people the opportunity to be up close and personal with the brand, whilst winning several prizes, enjoying offers and having dreams come true.

This is breeding some form of animosity between Yaw Tog’s fans and the Asaaka Boys whose fame has waned considerably.

For this reason, when Yaw Tog flew to London for the first time in his life and also appeared on Tim Westwood’s program- it sparked an interesting debate amongst their respective fans on Twitter.

Yaw Tog has thus become the youngest artist from Ghana to be featured by Tim Westwood on Capital Radio. Amerado, Yaw Tog and Kweku Flick hopped into the studio after their successful ‘Ghana Party in Park’ concert held in London.

Tim Westwood is a British DJ and presenter of radio and television. He is often referred to by other DJs and artists appearing on his shows simply as Westwood. He presented the MTV UK show Pimp My Ride UK. In 2013, Westwood left BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 1Xtra after nearly twenty years and returned to Capital Radio (Wikipedia).
