GHANA TEAM REPORT - 2013
The Ghana team once again visited Ofoase and its surrounding communities in the Eastern Region of Ghana from 24th July-1st August, 2013.

The DAw01.jpgBeneficiaries:
The beneficiaries included the townsfolk of Ofoase, Nyamebekyere, Praso, Brenase, Bontoduase, Kotokuom and Adwafo.The target set for this was 5000 people, but we were able to meet only 3000 people. We did basic medical screening like checking of weight, height, temperature, blood-sugar level and blood pressure. Doctors treated cases like arthritis, malaria, infections of different etiologies, convulsion, hypertension, diabetes and the like. At the end of every day’s work gifts were distributed out.

The Volunteers: The numbers of volunteers estimated to have made this programme a success were about thirty four. With about twenty-two Ghanaian students based in Russia, two Russians, six Ghanaian students and four officials from POCI. In all it was a fulfilling experience for each volunteer despite the challenges.
