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.
