A common Ghanaian road
“Consequently, many individuals die simply because they were unable to get to our clinic, or the clinic was unable to transport them to a surgery center.”
Projected Completion date: summer 2018
The foundation has made a large impact on the region despite our small size, and this year we aim to continue our support and increase our efforts to help the people of Ghana. One issue that we have seen first hand, is the lack of transportation infrastructure to get sick and or injured individuals to the clinic. There are drive-able roads, but very rarely are there cars passing through that are willing to transport people to the clinic. Consequently, many individuals die simply because they were unable to get to our clinic, or the clinic was unable to transport them to a surgery center.
There are several ways that we can go about resolving this issue. The most feasible of which is for the foundation to find a suitable used ambulance, or other viable vehicle that we can then ship over to Tema, Ghana, a nearby shipping port. Currently, we are pursuing several avenues to procure an ambulance, and also researching shipping costs and export procedures.
We hope to get an ambulance to the Oworobong Clinic by the summer of 2018, as it is becoming a growing necessity to have a medical transport vehicle. But we need your help. Donations to the Foundation will go directly to funding our Ambulance Project. If you want to get a little more involved, or if you have a suitable vehicle to use as an ambulance, do not hesitate to contact us, we are more than welcome to have a conversation with you.
