We have been working in Ghana since 2007, since when it has become one of our most important partners.
Within Ghana, our work can be divided into several categories;
We have been sending several containers each year of much urgently required medical supplies to various hospitals throughout the country, including hospitals in Accra, Tamale, Wa, Lawra and Nandom. Containers would include a combination of medicines, medical disposable products such as gloves, syringes, catheters, etc, equipment such as sterilisers, dental equipment, anaesthetic machines and even diasysis machines. We also work in partnership with the Ostomy society of Ghana, a national Ghanaian charity that provides colostomy supplies to people who might otherwise not be able to afford these products.
We have been working with the Queen of Peace school in Wa, in the upper west province of Ghana, sending books, school furnitureand other necessary school equipment. We also helped install a bore hole to provide the school with good quality drinking water which was not previously available.
We also work with King’s Village near Tamale which has a school and a hospital. We have sent containers of aid to the hospital and donated a tractor to help farm the land to raise crops to feed the school children. We have also planted a fruit tree orchard next to the school.
Jacob’s Well Appeal works with our partners in Northern Ghana on fruit tree projects, dry season farming projects and also the seed bank projects.
