An enthusiast of Healthline, Vodafone’s multiple award-winning health programme, has saved the life of a trotro passenger who experienced a sudden cardiac arrest, as they journeyed from Accra to Kasoa.
Sharing his experience online, Sadat Adams Junior who uses the handle @Sadat Adams Jnr tweeted:
‘’It all started when we got to Lapaz and the young man started behaving strangely. He collapsed and was motionless when we got to Kwashiman. I remembered an episode of Healthline where the doctor educated viewers about cardiac arrest and how to revive someone in such condition. With my two hands clutched, I pressed his chest continuously whilst giving mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, in order to revive the heart. He regained consciousness and started coughing heavily’’
In a phone conversation, Sadat commended Vodafone for the valuable health education it is giving Ghanaians through its Healthline programme. He implored the telco to continue with the wonderful initiative.
Commenting on the initiative, Andre Tayo Jnr, Head of Brands at Vodafone Ghana said:
‘’We are excited about the impact Vodafone Healthline is making across the country. We introduced this life-changing programme as part of a commitment to show the world how a purpose-led company should conduct itself. We believe that by creating awareness about various diseases, disapproving the many myths surrounding health, and offering life-saving surgeries, Ghanaians can live healthy and better lives.’’
Millions of Ghanaians, like Sadat, have become enthusiasts of the programme, which is redefining television content in Ghana with its emotionally-gripping medical stories and health information.
Vodafone Healthline shows on UTV on Mondays at 9pm; TV3 on Sundays at 3pm; Adom TV on Saturdays at 8:30pm and on Family TV on Sundays at 8pm.
