A Thank You Letter from Ghana

Dear Marj. It was a great pleasure having you, Jocelyne, Danny, Karen, Dell Peter, Denise and Dr. Paul King in Ghana for medical missions that involved also Liberia and Sierra Leone. Our friendship with you and the KBNF team deepens with each visit and we thank God for your enthusiastic and passionate leadership and for the loving and joyful sacrifices of the rest of the team - executive, volunteers and the silent ones who work behind the scenes to ensure that goods and supplies are available for shipping. As you noted at the award ceremony, nearly 30 containers have been shipped, over half of them to Ghana alone. We value each of you and your love for Ghana and West Africa. Gladstone has shared with me news of what you all did at the Mount Olives Hospital over nearly four weeks period. The training of staff, support in patient care, the performance of the first spinal surgery by Dr. Paul King sharing his surgical skills as well and the clearing of yet another container shipment of medical items are all much appreciated. In my capacity as Chair of the Board of the mount Olives Foundation also, I place on record sincere thanks of the Board. The role played by the Hesse family and Gladstone and Faustina (even though physically absent in the period of the visit) in hosting all of you is valued and acknowledged with gratitude. I also place on record teaching materials donated to Faith Presbyterian Church School and the presents for the family. All of us, including the College of Health Sciences and in particular the Board of Trustees are ever grateful for all you have done to contribute to the building of human resource for health as well as to health infrastructure. God bless you all.
Rev. Prof Seth Ayettey, Ghana
