LAF funded the construction of a small medical clinic in Denkyira, Asikuma, Ghana. Dr. Erasumus Klutse (pictured at right) is the director of the nearest district hospital in Dunkwa-on-Offin and oversees the staffing and operations of the clinic. There is always need for small groups of nurses, doctors and other medical professionals to go visit Ghana and provide rural health care and education. You will be based in Dunkwa-on-Offin and work at the district hospital under the supervision of Dr. Klutse and in various rural health outposts. We can arrange trips of 2-10 people for a week to several months.
We also have a working relationship with World Joy, which works in the Abomosu area. There is housing available in Abomosu for groups to stay in while they provide service in the area. Both Brigham Young and Eastern Washington Universities' Nursing programs have sent groups to the Abomosu area. We are interested in partnering with other Nursing programs who are looking for a location where student nurses can provide much-needed educational services in rural communities.
