The Ghana Project was organized with the intent to assist in facilitating the purchasing of urgently needed equipment & supplies for the new born/neonatal nursery in St. Luke’s Missionary Hospital Apam, Gomoa West District in Central Ghana.
The hospital serves a community of approximately 182,000. The average number of births per months is between 63 and 77. Due to poor pre-natal care for there is a high incidence of newborns requiring intensive care.
The hospital suffers from an extreme lack of equipment & supplies. Consequently, there are 3 – 6 newborn deaths per month. The Ghana Project Fund Raising Raffle proceeds will be used entirely to for the purchase of those items needed by the medical & nursing staff to help in securing their goal of “every child born gets a fair chance to live”.
