‘Walk For the Bu’ is a 5KM Walkathon and fundraiser in Bear CreekPark. The event provides KBNF with the resources we need to continue making medical miracles in West Africa by delivering life-saving medical support.

Korle-Bu Neuroscience Foundation is a charity saving lives by tackling the most complicated medical conditions in West Africa and beyond: brain and spine.

Here’s How...

Surgery: Performing neurosurgery for those with no other hope, through medical missions

Supplies: Delivering medical equipment to hospitals and health centres on the front lines

Support: Equipping local neurosurgeons and health workers through training, education and funding

This year, more than 5 million patients will have no access to qualified neurosurgeons - resulting in otherwise avoidable disability and death.

Africa accounts for 15% of the global neurosurgical disease, but has access to less than 1% of the global neurosurgeon community while the US and Canada have 1 neurosurgeon for every 69,000 people...

Africa has just one Neurosurgeon for every 2,028,000 people. Liberia has a single neurosurgeon for the entire country of 4.8 million

KBNF wants to change these facts. Walk with us and help make a difference.

What we have accomplished so far (with your help):

  • Transported 38+ shipping containers of medical equipment overseas,an estimated retail value of $17,100,000
  • Partnered globally to facilitate the construction of a $213 Million USD modern hospital in Ghana
  • Helped more than 600 neuroscience patients, and supported 10,000 others seeking medical care
  • Directly supported 10 neurosurgeons and offered training to 2000+ local nurses and medics

Thank you for your support and for making a difference.

Together, we are making medical miracles for those who need it most.
