We recognize it is our responsibility to vet, to the best of our ability, anyone receiving funds and ensure that funds are used for the intended purposes. Thorough research is done to verify the legitimacy of the needs of an individual, orphanage or village. Monitoring is continuous and follow-up is consistent and ongoing.
“Hands-on” is our approach. We believe in being the hands and feet of Jesus which is why our team strives for quarterly visits. We keep in direct involvement with projects we are funding. We are also in constant contact with our resident team members.
This brings us to 16 year old Shalinda Akosah. In June 2019 Dr. Asamoah performed surgery to debulk a tumor in her left cheek. She was supposed to receive chemotherapy and radiation in the area post-surgery but, as is so common in a developing country, the family could not cover the costs and she went without the necessary treatments. Her tumor grew quickly in a short period of time. In January 2020 Shalinda visited Dr. Asamoah and with Ghana Ministries we made arrangements for her to receive the treatment she so desperately needed. Her father, Rogers, was not a believer but has now given his life to Christ!
This little fellow had a problem with the fluid in his brain accumulating. We were able to pay for a shunt to permanently drain the fluid.
Baby S. She had a rather large opening in her spine. We provided testing and supportive care. Sadly, she passed before the surgical repair could be done.
Three year old “K” had a tumor on his kidney. We met him at the end of his treatment. Through donations were were able to pay his remaining hospital bills so he and his family could return to their village.
