About Us

Committed to Improving the Lives of God’s Children

Ghana Ministries was founded on the belief that God calls each of us to help those who cannot provide for themselves. We are committed to spreading the love of God to impoverished orphans in Ghana. Our team members cover the majority of their own travel and living expenses, meaning that the highest possible percentage of all donations we receive go straight back into the ministry. With your help, we can continue providing for needs such as educational facilities and medical and dental care.

How We Got Started

After our first trip to Ghana, we knew we were being called to help raise the standard of living conditions for all the orphans in this area. We were eager to help this community in as many ways as possible, so we established Ghana Ministries, a non-profit organization, to begin outlining plans to do so. Since that time, we have focused all our efforts on making a meaningful impact in the lives of the orphans of Ghana.

Mission & Vision

We seek to unite and mobilize individuals and communities to drive a gospel-centered movement focused on providing physical and spiritual support, love, and hope that transforms the lives of the Ghana orphans. Our work raises awareness and inspires action to raise the standard of living for those we serve.

Ghana Ministries provides many forms of support to orphan communities, including:

  • Spiritual
  • Financial
  • Emotional
  • Medical
  • Dental
  • Educational

Our network of disciples is committed to building relationships with orphans, as well as with the local organizations that directly support orphan communities.

Statement of Faith

“…to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” – James 1:27

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling we are enabled to live a godly life. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, with equality across racial, gender, and class differences.

medical care

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!

15 year old Gladys was brought to us in November 2020 with a large, facial  myoepithelioma, a benign tumor. Her father abandoned the family  leaving Grace, Gladys mother, to care for Gladys, her 10 year old sister Doris and 1 year old twins Paul and Blessing.
Gladys’s mother works in the fields  and received very little support from her community as Gladys’ condition labeled her as “cursed”. They could not afford the medical care she so desperately needed. Thanks to donors we were able to sponsor Gladys and she had extensive surgery in January 2021 to remove the tumor. Gladys is a happy, kind, intelligent young lady who aspires to be a nurse one day.

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.

Baby K

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.
