your GIFT PROVIDES ACCEPTANCE AND LOVE.
After watching her mother suffer a stroke due to incompatible prescribed medications, Lena Kuffuor-Afriyie, 19, decided to pursue a career in pharmacy.
“I was so curious about what was going on with my mom’s health and all the different medicines, I made it a goal to pursue pharmacy to answer all the questions for myself,“said Kuffuor-Afriyie.
A sophomore at the University at Buffalo (New York), Kuffuor-Afriyie received an Ethnic Scholarship from the World Communion Sunday offering.
“I wish to open my own pharmacies in Ghana because there are some remote areas where people have no access to the proper materials for good health,” said Kuffuor-Afriyie, whose parents are from Ghana, West Africa. “Using these pharmacies as windows to health education,” she continued, “I would like to be able to provide knowledge to local patients about their conditions and how to maintain themselves, even with no hospitals nearby.“
She said offerings from World Communion Sunday can help students pursue educational goals and relieve financial pressures, adding, “I want to be a vessel of comfort and support for those who need it.”
Kuffuor-Afriyie is a member of Ghana Wesley United Methodist Church, Brooklyn, where she sings in the senior and youth choirs, organizes youth activities and leads worship service as a liturgist.
