Provide health in an impoverished Ghanaian slum



Women and children suffer the most from poor health in impoverished communities like Glefe in Ghana. We are providing health services to members of Glefe, a slum community outside Ghana's capital.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In spite of economic progress in Ghana, health conditions remain deplorable: shocking numbers of women die due to complications with pregnancy and childbirth, too many children die before their 5th birthday, and many simply have no access to health-care.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project provides access to health-care for Glefe, a slum community near the capital, Accra, where unsanitary conditions and impoverishment leads to high occurrences of disease and premature death. Our project provides essential health screening, treatment and education to residents of this community while tackling underlying causes of disease such as poor sanitation, nutrition, poverty and lack of access to education.

Potential Long Term Impact

Surroundings will be cleaner; mothers will be healthier and will live to deliver stronger babies; families will be protected from malaria; the community will be educated and energized to recognize the importance of health and ways to be healthier; the world will be a happier place :)
