For the first time, a team of Transformational Community Development (TCD) workers, doctors, nurses, and partners led by GHNI Regional Field Leader Martins visited Blamonga and Tanloaga. These are two hidden and hurting villages in Northern Togo. In both villages, we were happily received by the chiefs and the villagers, who were excited to learn more.

For two full days, we ran medical clinics and handed out medications to the villagers. Life-threatening diseases were discovered among some of the men and children by our doctors, Mike and Segun, and they provided quick intervention.

Not only that, we took with us two sets of sewing and knitting machines, one set each for the two villages. Our trainers, Julie and Sarah, educated the women and younger women about the value of acquiring sewing and knitting skills. Sewing and knitting lessons began immediately. Thereafter, the knitting and sewing machines were donated to the village upon the understanding that a Women’s Centre would begin soon, and trainers were hired to teach the skills to women in the villages.

Vivienne and Lawrence, our friends from the US were excited to be part of the activities that were held.

It was not just a visit; it was indeed a new dawn of help and hope!
