Amazing Grace Children’s Foundation (AGCF) organized its fourth Medical Mission in Ghana from January 7-9, 2019.
The organization mobilized 30 volunteer healthcare professionals from the United States, and over 30 from Ghana to serve on the mission.
More than half the number of Ghanaian healthcare professionals that participated came from the Greater Accra branch of the Pediatric Society of Ghana as they partnered us for the year’s outreach.
Working together as a team, the healthcare workers provided healthcare services to mothers and children in two low resource communities within Accra – the capital of the West African country.
On January 7, being the first day of the mission, AGCF set up at Jamestown (southern Accra) screening and medicating about 345 adults and children for various diseases.
According to plan, the program was moved on January 8 and 9, to Odorkor-Otaten in the Ablekuma North Municipality within Accra, where 1,007 people we served.
Technically, a total of 1,352 people including mothers and children were seen during the 3-day mission. The aged were not left out as they received care for various health issues.
No items found.
AGCF also organized a seminar on sexual and reproductive health at the Accra Senior High School, which was heavily attended by students.
The Assemblyman for Jamestown, the Member of Parliament for Ablekuma North and the Municipal Chief Executive for the Area are among personalities to whom we are thankful for contributing to the year’s mission in diverse ways.
We at Amazing Grace Children’s Foundation, would like to express our profound gratitude to all our volunteers whose commitment and unflagging enthusiasm to service made this year’s mission a great success.
The mothers, children and everyone else that got touched by your act of kindness remain ever indebted to you.
