1. OBJECTIVES OF MMF
The Objective of the Marshallan Medical Fund (MMF) is to support critically ill members of the Noble Order who require emergency surgery or other medical intervention, which is outside the scope of the National Health Insurance Scheme in order to survive.
The MMF is true Marshallan charity at work because the annual levy each member pays is used to support a needed brother or sister.
The MMF was officially launched by the Supreme Knight, Sir Knight Brother Ekow Paintsil and Grand Lady, Most Respected Lady Sister Margaret Yirenkyi on Saturday, February 22, 2014 at the Christian Village in Kumasi during the 2014 Grand Knights’ and Noble Ladies’ Forum. The Board of Trustees dedicated the entire 2014 for fund raising. Actual operation of the MMF with payment of benefits commenced January 2015.
3. ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR YEAR 2017
The MMF is open to all members of the Noble Order in Ghanas who have paid in full their MMF levy of GHS5.00 per annum for the years 2015, 2016 and 2017.
4. MAXIMUM MMF BENEFIT
The Board of Trustees of the MMF at its 12th meeting of January __ 2017, revised upward the maximum MMF benefit payable to an applicant by 33.3% to GHS2,000.00.
