Each time that we travel to Yendi, Northern Ghana our passion for helping those that we serve grows exponentially.  This year was no different.  It is a transformative experience to touch the lives of others in such an astounding way. We served thousands of people with medical care in the villages and performed over 100 surgical procedures.  We also opened an ICU (Builing 1441) and set up a tele-medicine platform to stay in communication with and offer assistance to our colleagues in Yendi.

Here are some quotes from team members that sum up their experiences:

I feel very thankful and fortunate that I had the opportunity to help provide anesthesia as part of a group who provided life-changing operations for people in Yendi and surrounding areas. To work along side (my family) Debbie, Haley, and Jordan in the operating room, was priceless! This journey definitely reinforced our sense of humility, thankfulness, and service to God…..

-Jeff

We saw 91 patients and performed 107 procedures, opened and dedicated a new ICU ward, installed virtual communications between the states and Yendi Hospital, dedicated 5 wells in the surrounding villages (Thank you Sue Manhart!!)… Thank you to all my family and friends for your undying love and support because without you I️ would not be able to have the privilege of following my heart & passion for serving these wonderful people of Ghana!!

…How can a group of undeniably rich people come back home completely wrecked and humbled by coming in close to those with so little? I believe it is through one small moment like one I experienced driving through the countryside with a new friend, Mustapha. This man came to a place quite some time ago, listening to a call on his life to help his brothers and sisters suffering in Yendi. He is a strong light in a place in need of much of it, and he is courageously and tirelessly serving to bring hope in this situation. It was during this mission of his i found myself riding next to him, listening to all the answers he supplied to our inquisitive minds that he started humming this song when a moment of rare quiet fell upon the truck. hearing him sing those words made my heart seem to take a leap in my chest, and before i knew it, i was singing along with him. for a moment it felt as though heaven rushed through the metal vehicle we were sitting in, as tears welled up in my eyes and i saw the picture I’ve learned i’m striving to see – that is people who might never belong together experiencing the same grace each was offered by the same Creator. i don’t understand these small glimpses, not one bit. but maybe, just maybe, they point two separate lives both in the same direction completely in those moments, unifying them under love and freedom. this week was marked by many, many stories, but for my heart, this so captured and turned me yet again to the power and grace of my Father. may this fuel my call to do what i feel I’ve been made to do, and may my friend Mustapha be ever-supplied with that presence with his Father.

Getting to spend a week watching my successful American doctor friends stand shoulder to shoulder with their under trained and under resourced peers who have different colored skin and speak very broken English in one of the worlds poorest communities…is watching God at work. It’s watching the rich give to the poor. It’s watching the many become one. It’s watching light push back the darkness. It’s watching hope in action. The need is great. The God is BIG.

-Randy

 

After a couple days of reflection, I still can’t find the words to describe my feelings. There really are no words that are sufficient. The tears continue to come as the memories are shared, as I hold my healthy son, and as I look at my surroundings.  It was an absolute privilege to be able to travel to Ghana, West Africa, with a group of 52 people with loving, serving hearts. As a team, we performed over 100 surgical procedures and medically treated thousands in villages.  I left a piece of my heart in Ghana but brought home so much more. I have learned so much from the humble, kind, grateful and sincere Ghanaian people. I will forever be thankful that I had the opportunity to be a small part of their lives. To God be the Glory!

What We Do

  • Medical

    Teams have gone in past years to do medical mission work in various villages outside the city of Yendi.  Within hours thousands of people gather to seek medical treatment.

    In December of 2017 a surgical team is heading to Ghana to work in the Yendi Municipal Hospital.  Right now the only doctor in the area is scheduling much needed procedures for the team to perform.

  • Educational

    Today a Christian school with an enrollment of over 400 students is operated by Mustapha.  Through a partnership in southern Illinois, the school has been given many desks and school supplies. This is done through truckloads of supplies being shipped from the USA.  Each shipping container costs just over $6,000 to get from the USA to the city of Yendi in Ghana.

  • Water Wells

    Care 4 Ghana desires to expand and put in water wells in villages where clean drinking water is in short supply.  Many villagers walk for miles with buckets on their heads to find water for their families.

  • Mosquito Netting

    Thousands of people die each year with malaria.  It is easily treated if they have access to the needed medication.  Also it is preventable by sleeping under a mosquito net to prevent the fly from landing on and stinging them.  Hundreds of nets are being distributed each year to fight this problem. This is a $7 solution to a life threatening disease.

  • Soccer Equipment

    One of the new members on the Care4Ghana team is Reagan.  She has spent several months collecting soccer equipment to donate to the Ghanaian children.  The items she’s collected include full uniforms, cleats, balls and other equipment.  We would like to thank the Francis Howell soccer program, St. Louis Ambassadors soccer club and Soccer Master for their generous donations.
