I had the honor and privilege to have Peggy Finnegan of WPXI in my home for a television interview as part of the series, “Proud to be from Pittsburgh.” It was an amazing experience with a wonderful television professional. Peggy shared a heartfelt interest in Hope for Ghana’s mission and she captures the essence of this journey so perfectly. On January 23, 2015 the story of Hope for Ghana was featured in the evening news.
On October 5, 2015 ZTV in Accra aired the story of The Elena Haasen Library and the work of Hope for Ghana in a piece entitled “Tegbi Library Inaugurated” as part of their local news coverage. My great thanks to journalists Thomas Wemegah and Gideon Amevor for the thorough coverage and their sincere appreciation for Hope for Ghana’s recently created library and computer lab in Tegbi.
Hope for Ghana’s mission first hit the newsstand in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania just less than two weeks before my leaving for Ghana to launch the first project at Ryvanz-Mia Orphanage. On December 15, 2011 Pittsburgh Tribune-Review beautifully featured “Shadyside doctor answers Ghana’s call.”
The second chapter of Hope for Ghana’s work was featured in Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on January 30, 2014 in a piece entitled “Fundraiser to benefit Penn Hills doctor’s mission work.”
Hope for Ghana’s mission to build a third library and computer lab in Ghana was featured in Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on January 7, 2015 in a piece entitled “Penn Hills-based doc raises money to build libraries in Ghana.”
