Healthy Relationships for the People of Ho

GlobeMed at Northwestern is in Phase III of the Sexual Health Program in Ho, through which students groups help their peers at High Schools and Tertiary Institutions understand why people contract STDs, the importance of personal hygiene, and about having healthy sexual relationships.  Through working with one’s peers this program will help the young adults connect with each other and really learn what is being taught.  Any donation can help us educate and send our peer educators to various schools to speak.  Also, December 1st marks the start of our Individual Giving FUNdrazor Campaign, where we hope to raise $3000 this month to support the entire nutrition program for the H.O.P.E center.  In the holiday spirit, please consider Northwestern’s GlobeMed when donating as this year comes to a close! Thank you so much for all your help and support. As always, it is greatly appreciated.

GlobeMed at Northwestern hopes to nourish the children of Ho, Ghana through empowerment.  By helping give people the resources and information they need, Ghanians will improve their lives and learn how to do so on their own in the future.  Through teaching mom’s about nutrition and giving them resources, like soy beans, the children of Ghana can have access to nutritious food that they desperately need. With a donation of just $10 you provide enough food to support a family for one month! Thank you for keeping up with GlobeMed and for all of your support.

October Updates and Funding Push!

We are really excited for the new direction of our nutrition program this year with vegetable and protein supplements to enhance diets of malnourished children and know that it will make a huge impact on the villages of Ho. This is especially true given that over 50% of deaths past early infancy can be contributed to malnutrition, specifically Protein Energy Malnutrition.1  Our project started out with introducing soya beans and their benefits and then giving mothers access to and teaching them about soya beans. Our next goal is to help children vary their diet so that it includes vegetables and fruits in addition to protein supplements.  

Our nutrition program, which has been running for almost four years has had a lot of success, but funding is crucial to help keep it running.  With the last match day of the year coming up on October 19th, every donation and dollar really counts!  Please help us continue to help the children of Ghana; as our members who visited this summer saw, they are truly amazing children who deserve to lead healthy lives and have access to countless opportunities that only we can make possible! Thank you again for your continued support of the H.O.P.E Center and GlobeMed.
