Private Joseph Hammond and Nana Kwame Bediako

Nana Kwame Bediako, also known as Freedom Jacob Caesar, has donated a fully furnished 2-bedroom apartment to 95-year-old Ghanaian WWII veteran, Private Joseph Hammond.

The donation is part of New Africa Foundation’s sustainable framework and long-term vision for veterans across the continent.

Private Hammond recently made headlines for raising £43,500 for frontline health workers and veterans in Africa during the COVID-19 pandemic by walking 3.2 kilometers (two miles) each day to reach his target on Africa Day in Accra.

The war veteran was subsequently honoured by Queen Elizabeth for his fundraising efforts.
