WATER NEEDED

Help quench the thirst of many!

The Fever Relief Fund (FRF) was founded in 2010 (with tax-exempt status granted in 2012) by Akwasi Oppong, a native of Ghana, and current United States citizen. As a 14 year resident of the U.S., Akwasi has tasted first-hand the abundance, opportunity, and provision of the U.S. In contrast, for him, was the lack of books, clothing, necessary every-day items, medical supplies and equipment, after-school programs, athletic equipment, and libraries in his homeland. His ability to establish a highly successful business in the professional sports management field only heightened his passion for making a change in his homeland-Ghana, Fulton County Georgia, Cobb County Georgia and in Tarrant County, Texas. Thus The Fever Relieve Fund was created.

Although Ghana has been classified as a low middle-income country by the World Bank since 2010, its development indicators compare poorly with those of most countries in this category. Ghana has made significant progress towards attaining the MDGs. It is likely to attain the MDGs on the eradication of extreme poverty, universal primary education, promotion of gender equality, empowerment of women, and combating HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases.

Ghana continues to be challenged by slow progress on reduction of under-5 mortality, improvement of maternal health and environmental sustainability Ghana is, demographically speaking, a very young nation. Nearly 40 per cent of the country’s population is under the age of 14. However, the hardships that many young Ghanaians face are overwhelming. 27,000 Ghanaian children of this youngest population segment are living with HIV. Around 160,000 Ghanaian children have been orphaned due to AIDS and are now facing a life without their biological parents.

More information

At present, an estimated 1.1 million children in Ghana have lost either one of or both their parents. In Accra, thousands of young children and adolescents sleep on pieces of cardboard in doorways, parking lots and bus stations. They beg for money, sell merchandise or engage in petty theft in order to survive. Approximately one third of them are only 10 to 14 years old.

With a successful stateside business in sports management, FRF through the efforts of Akwasi, has been able to capture an impressive array of supporters, donors, and partners. Some of them are listed here, however, there are more and the list increases daily. The Henry Jackson Foundation, the United States Department of Defense, Quazi Trendz LLC The Jerome Bettis Foundation, Ghana Embassy, Quazi Auto Group LLC, and The Charles Sanders Charities (totaling more than $1.5M). The total values of items donated to date are more than $3M. Fever Relief Fund closes the gap by connecting those who have with those who hope.

Over 100% of your donations goes to our mission of providing clothes, books, and medical supplies to less fortunate children.
