Organisation Description:

West Africa AIDS Foundation (WAAF) is a non-governmental not-for-profit organization, registered in Ghana in 1999 with the Registrations General and the Social Welfare Department.

It was founded by Eddie Donton after losing his first son to sickle cell disease at the age of 7 when residing in California. As a way of grieving, Eddie decided to find a way to deliver end-of-life care to those who needed it. He set up WAAF in Ghana to serve the region of West Africa due to the desperate need for quality health care, especially for HIV and AIDS patients in the region.

For the past 20 years, the organization, together with its onsite clinic, has been able to provide education, screening, testing and treatment to the marginalized in society thanks to the generous support of various people and organizations. Additionally, children orphaned by AIDS have received support such as funds needed to enroll and keep them in school, ensuring they do not fall prey to the vicious cycle of poverty, vulnerability and illiteracy.
