Will Writing Workshop’, a virtual workshop for the Association of Ghana’s Elders held on Sunday 25th July, attracted an audience from different walks of life and background to delve into Wills and prepare a safe transition of vital information when one passes.
As one of the programs run by the Association, Virtual Hangouts were instituted during the 2021 COVID-19 pandemic to ensure Seniors found other ways to interact with one another and share important information as well. The Will Writing Workshop, which is the fourth of its kind held by AGE brought together a panel of experienced resource people to answer relevant questions and demystify death and the notion that Wills are for older people only.
The event featured a panel discussion with Lady-Eileen Erskine, Esq. (Lawyer – Head of Chamber, Quashie and Cann), Nana Akwasi Awuah, Esq. (Lawyer – Managing Partner, Parkwood & Mossane), and Mr Charles Garshong (Head of External Communications, SSNIT) and Dr Esi Ansah as the moderator. The positive feedback received on the day was heartening. It showed the interest and hunger there is for proper information and education.
The Virtual event ended at 6 pm with participants equipped with the necessary information to start putting together a Will and making necessary transitionary preparation without fear of the unknown. For those who missed it, the live stream is available on YouTube
