Medical Mission 2016: Liberian Hospital Visit

Dear KBNF Family,

Our Trip included several of us going to tour the hospitals in Liberia, West Africa. Many of these hospitals are being helped with supplies and equipment by Korle-Bu Neuroscience Foundation and our shipping partner Compassionate Resource Warehouse.

We were glad to see the ingenuity and bravery of the Liberian Health Care professionals at C.H. Rennie Hospital in Margibi. Below is a picture of Dr. Johnson & staff creating a baby scale for their infants. Wow, folks, this was really neat. It goes to show that to achieve wonderful results, ingenuity, courage and passion are the best assets.

More to come!

KBNF Team Mission Update

Dear KBNF Family & Friends,

We are in Ghana! Our team started off with air travel, where they met up with me, Marj, in Amsterdam for the final leg to Ghana! Dell Wergeland, President of the Compassionate Resource Warehouse joined us for this trip, to assess where our hard earned donation dollars have gone, and how the places we’ve sent container shipments of medical supplies to have used our gifts. More from Dell later.

We hit the ground running with a tour of the Accra School of Medicine, where team members Danny Moe and I (and others in the future) are to be teaching medical students in this brand new private medical school for Ghana. IMG_9049IMG_9058

The Accra School of Medicine is a privately owned institution built by incredible champions and doctors, the Hesse’s. A Heart Power institution, it teaches compassionate care alongside medicine.

That’s all for now, time to get back to the Mission!
