The Founder and Executive Director of Ropheka Foundation; an NGO in Health, Dr. Mary Dei-Zanga has observed with regrets the attitude of most Ghanaians constantly talking about diseases that affects the human system, yet not paying due attention to the lifesaving organ, the ‘Liver’.
“I have always been fascinated about how a single organ in the human anatomy can perform over 500 lifesaving functions in a day, however, the functions of the liver are not well known and underestimated.”
She made the observation at the official launch of the Ropheka Foundation which took place at Christ the King Parish Hall in Accra on Saturday, June 2, 2018.
The inauguration ceremony also witnessed the launch of a book titled “The Liver, “The unsung Hero”.
The book illustrates the willingness of the foundation to support the mission and vision in curing and preventing liver diseases in the country and the world at large.
Speaking at the launch, Dr. Mary Dei-Zanga said: “The launch of the book seeks to shed light on the liver and its functions in relation to health and general well-being. The liver is indeed “The unsung Hero”, she stressed.
