The new GGM Lady Deborah Berewa Hospital in Lakka opened the doors in December of 2012. Currentlyoperating as a free outpatient clinic the hospital has been seeing an average of 40 patients a day.
GGM is continuing to work closely with the office of the First Lady of Sierra Leone as we develop a cancer screening program and cancer center. From March 16th – April 2 a 10 member team from Greatest Goal Ministries will betraveling to Sierra Leone. One of the primary objectives will be a two week water and sanitation household survey ofa 6 mile radius surrounding the new Lady Deborah Berewa Hospital (LDBH) in Lakka in conjunction with the local chief and council members.
An additional objective will be meetings with the First Lady and her team as we progress on our discussions of expansion at the LDBH. GGM has been busy since December talking to organizations in the USA who may be able to assist in development of this joint dream to develop cancer screening and a cancer hospital.
Two medical mission trips have also been scheduled for October and December of 2013. These teams are composed of physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses and allied health care workers and volunteers.
We are busy trying to learn about our new community and will work with the local chief and decision makers in regard to community health education programs and services GGM may be able to assist with.
