Ghana continues to be one of the most stable countries in sub-Saharan Africa and has developed substantially over the years. It has a population of about 29.6 million (2018). In the past years, it has taken significant strides toward democracy under a multi-party system. Twenty-six months after being elected, President Akuffo-Addo has had some successes, but he also faces challenges fulfilling his election pledges—including setting up jobs, free school education and medical facilities to be reachable to all Ghana’s citizens. Since the new administration opened thousands of schools and field hospitals, they need to be set up, furnished, and supplied to assist this small but striving country.

MEDIGRID AID
Our recipient organization -MEDIGRID AID, ACCRA, GHANA

We at WOC are proud to be a part of this improvement. September 2018, Church of Christ volunteers in cooperation with World of Connections program shipped a 40’ high cube container full of medical beds with mattresses, medical supply, furniture, clothing and food to be distributed by MEDIGRID AID among remote areas of Ghana.

Distribution of enriched rice meals from Stamp Out Starvation. Thanks to the hard work of Mr. Monte Stewart and all volunteers at Stamp Out Starvation, we were able to include 132 boxes of dry enriched rice meals that were distributed among orphanages and specialized kitchens for poor population in Gomoa East District of Ghana. As in any country in a difficult situation, children suffer the most. WOC works hard to support schools, orphanages and children programs in Ghana. With this load we were able to gift clothing, shoes, toys and books to over 15 different children based assembly.
