As the Chinese proverb says: “Give a man a fish, and you’ve fed him for a day. Teach a man how to fish, and you’ve fed him for a lifetime.” GlobeMed at Northwestern focuses on helping the people of Ghana through empowerment rather than simply giving them food.  By starting with teaching moms about nutrition, they can influence their children to eat healthy food and supply it with the resources that our program helps provide.  Currently, we are working on an Individual Giving Campaign, which involves splitting our chapter into teams and each raising $300 for the H.O.P.E center.  With our total goal of $3,000, we can fund the entire nutrition program.  With the holiday spirit in mind, please help us achieve this goal and impact not only this generation on Ghanians but also future ones with our aim of teaching and empowerment.  Thanks for keeping up with our chapter and for your support this holiday season.  Happy Holidays from GlobeMed!
