Learn More about the Missionary Work We Provide

Since Ghana Ministries began serving orphaned children, we have been fortunate to work with a lot of talented and giving people. Their involvement coupled with our resources and skills has helped us to make improvements to the children’s lives here. You, too, can be a part of our missionary work in Ghana by donating resources or time to our cause.

We have been blessed to visit Ghana many times over the last few years and are happy to share all of our amazing projects that we have completed. 

Dental Care

Dental care is a much-needed service for many in Ghana. Several of the children in one orphanage we serve were in dire need of dental care and Dr. John Marshall of Tuscaloosa, Alabama stepped in to help. While everyone at home in the U.S. was enjoying a traditional Thanksgiving, he and his daughter Anna Grace spent the week attending to not only the students on the school grounds but many in the surrounding village as well. In total, 460 people were seen and were provided with dental services such as extractions, a root canal, fillings and fluoride treatments. We are indebted to Dr. E. Asamoah, Daniel Adjei kusi, Dina Akom, and Hannah Bissah for donating their time and talents to screening and cleaning!

Dignity Project

Bringing dignity to young girls and making sure that they are equipped with the correct materials as they become women is so important. Many times, in a place where money is scarce, some items become a luxury rather than a necessity. We saw this need and knew we could help. With the help of The Dignity Project, started by Jade Metz in Uganda, Africa, we were able to provide every young girl and woman at an orphanage with washable, reusable sanitary pads and carrying cases.

Fresh Water

This was one of the first projects that Ghana Ministries was able to complete. The old well and pump was on its last leg and was critical for an orphanage housing 80 plus kids. Thank you to TankPro of Tuscaloosa, Alabama and several very generous donors who responded quickly, a new well was drilled and an entire new tank was purchased and installed.

Completed Projects

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.
