Have a heart, save a life today

Stellar Group partners with Children’s Heart Foundation Ghana to support children with congenital heart disease

Stellar Group (Stellar Travel, Stellar Logistics and Stellar Hospitality), as part of its commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, is supporting the Children’s Heart Foundation (CHF) in Ghana.

Every year over 200 children are diagnosed with Congenital Heart Disease (CDH) in Ghana, and often their families cannot afford to pay the high medical bills needed to undergo surgery. The CHF works closely with the National Cardio-thoracic Centre at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital and identifies families that need support.

A congenital heart defect is a life-threatening condition that is present from birth. It is caused by abnormal formation of the heart during fetal development. In most cases, when a baby is born with congenital heart disease, there is no known reason for it.

Since 2009, the Children’s Heart Foundation has raised over ten million Ghana Cedis and has paid for the surgeries of over 200 children.

As part of its broader goal to help build a healthy community, Stellar Group participated in a very successful fund-raising ball in May 2019 to support 22 children with CDH undergo successful surgeries. In addition, the Stellar Group has committed to the sponsorship of three children who will require heart surgery in 2019.

Stellar Group has also resolved to deepen its corporate social responsibility in Ghana by regularly supporting initiatives that will impact society positively and transform lives.

Commenting on the choice of CSR, Patrick McQuaid, MD of Stellar Group stated that, environmental sustainability, direct donations, economic responsibility, and ethical business practice form the foundation of Stellar’s corporate social responsibility. When we heard about the great things that the CHF were doing, it was an easy decision” he added.

Stellar Group operates three main subsidiaries in Ghana;
Stellar Travel, a travel management company, provides both corporate, institutional, and individual services including travel reservations for both air and land transportation, airport pick up services, hotel reservations, and tour packages. Stellar Travel also aids with visas, and other immigration facilitation services.

Stellar Logistics is also dedicated to supply chain solutions in Ghana. Its core services include cargo clearance, warehousing, and transport logistics delivering tailor-made solutions to various industries in Ghana.

And finally, Stellar Hospitality, which offers a mix of hotel rooms and apartments situated close to the leafy suburb of Chapel Hill, ideally placed for business and pleasure. Champs Sports Bar, located at Stellar Lodge, offers great food and the perfect place in Takoradi to watch all your favourite sports.
