I am Kerry-Ann Pinnock, the CEO and Founder of 3 Foundations, a not for profit UK based organisation established in 2010. Our mission is to connect unique people to help change lives here in the UK and also in poverty stricken countries. 

This Christmas season I will be travelling to Ghana to volunteer as a Physiotherapist. Where I will be working on a project to help provide a better stroke service for those people affected by a stroke at the Korle Bu Hospital in Accra. A stroke occurs due to a bleed or obstruction in the brain and can lead to significant disabilities affecting the way people live forever,a stroke can also lead to death. The most current study conducted at Korle Bu teaching hospital reported that 69% of stroke patients died within 24 hours of the onset of stroke. If stroke suffers are given adequedate medical care, they have a better chance of surviving, integrating and contributing to society. Our organization is dedicated to the process of making that happen but we need your help. 

The overall aim is to collabrate with qualified healthcare professionals and volunteers in the UK to work in partnership with Korle Bu Teaching Hospital to provide adequate medical resources for the prevention and treatment of a stroke.

Your donation will bring us closer to our goal. We want to involve businesses, charities, individuals and community leaders to help us make a difference. Our organisation is clearly excited and eager to see this project succeed. You can be a part of it by supporting the project with a small donation and sharing our project with others. We are happy to acknowledge your donation on our website and at our numerous events taking place in the New Year (unless you prefer otherwise).

Should you have any enquires regarding our organization or the project, please feel free to contact me via email info@3-foundations.org.uk. You can also find out more about our work by visiting www.3-foundations.org.uk
