Today I was supposed to have arrived in Ghana for the next chapter in Hope for Ghana’s journey. A travel ban imposed by Ghana’s President a few days ago changed my plans in a single second, but could never stop Hope for Ghana’s mission to care for the most essential needs of children and families in the remote villages of Ghana.
Hope for Ghana stands ready to support the Ghanaian people as this global healthcare crisis slowly spreads its way into Ghana. We will donate to hospitals and the local villages masks, gloves, sanitizer and soap, all of which is bought in Ghana.
The effects of coronavirus in the midst of Ghana’s fragile healthcare system can be devastating. In collaboration with Senyo Gbormittah, Hope for Ghana’s Ground Operations Assistant, and Dr. Nicholas Cheremeh, Medical Director at Akatsi District Hospital, we will provide education and protection from the virus in the world’s most vulnerable population. One village at a time.
My prayers to everyone around the world for calm, peace, safety and health. Let us come together in this time of uncertainty and fear to help each other at home and around the globe.
