FRIENDS OF FRIENDS HYPES DONATES 15 WHEELCHAIRS TO B/A REGIONAL HOSPITAL
November 19, 2018
Indeed where there’s a will, there’s a way. That is the success story of the Friends of Friends Hype, a group of young models and other vibrant youth who managed to solicit funds to buy 15 wheelchairs for the Brong Ahafo Regional Hospital and climaxed it with a street fashion show.
In a colourful event which was headlined by Tear Rubber hitmaker Yaa Jackson, patrons were thrilled by endearing salsa dance performance from the Friends of Friends Hypes.
The runway display by the elegant models both men and women was an ecstasy of sight to arouse your adrenaline to try a catwalk (as a woman) or a dog walk (as a man) in those trendy apparels.
Pascaline Faakye, Suleman Issah, Marcel Dery, George, Kwaku Agyemang Badu (Derla So), Nana Afia, Grace and others are the brains behind this prolific initiative.
Veteran Radio Broadcaster Delar So hinted the move is to tell the world, there is a wielding power within the youth to make the world a better place.
“We paid a courtesy call on the management of Brong Ahafo Regional Hospital to identify their major challenge and they suggested they needed wheelchairs. We, however, approached some individuals and cooperate institutes to assist us financially. We climaxed the event with this show to provide a platform for both fashion designers and models across the world to showcase their agile skills. And God willingly we could afford 15 wheelchairs for them” he noted.
Pascaline who is also a model sought to debunk the erroneous impressions people have about modelling.
Pascaline notes “This is to tell the world that modelling is not a thing for the aimless or rascals. In the field of fashion, one needs to demonstrate to the world the new trends they have created. This requires professionals who have trained to trim their bodies to fit well into these masterpieces to invoke customers. Mind you, across the world modelling really pays. We need to encourage our relatives who will love to model”
Pascaline noted the project is an ongoing one which will require consistent support from donors.
“We want to reach out to other health facilities, hence when we come to your outfit kindly support us”
Some of the notable designed who featured were Papitailor, House of N1, Nipo Skin, House of Micky, Rainbow, Quality designs, Richye Couture and Sally Afrik.
