“To alleviate the suffering of West Africans with a special focus on those affected by diseases of the brain and spine and to address related health care issues.”
We are committed to supporting health care infrastructure for the region by partnering with West African champions in the development of sustainable neuroscience and health care delivery. We support neuro specialist education and training for the doctors, nurses and other health care professionals who work in their homelands.
We are committed to the establishment of a neuro rehabilitation service in Ghana focused primarily on delivering rehabilitation for stroke patients. We believe that a basic requirement of sustainable health care is Heart Power, caring with your heart, caring with compassion.
