In an interview with Showbiz, eShun said, “What is music without a cause? It hasn’t been long since I started doing music commercially but I do not think I should wait till I am all over the world before doing something to help communities around me. I have been doing a campaign generally on living a healthy life style zeroing in on Breast Cancer and encouraging the public to drink more water for a year now.”
“I am very pleased because I can see my dreams of doing something to help improve the health care of my people with this eShun HealthCare Project happening,” she added.
Co-Founder of the Gold Coast Medical Foundation, Dr. Kwabena Boakye said, “The true measure of a good society is not in its exhibition of affluence, but rather how the privilege treats those who are on the social margins,” he said.
