You can help make a difference for a family in Ghana!
We are so excited to tell you about this one-of-a-kind opportunity the Eleanor Mann School of Nursing (EMSON) has given us to travel to Bolgatanga, Ghana this summer! There are 14 of us EMSON students, at varying levels of the nursing program, that will be traveling to Ghana to provide community service teaching about identified needs for the villages. Some of these needs include: malaria prevention, dental hygiene, respiratory illnesses, wound care, infant hydration, nutrition/ anemia screening, CPR, safe sex, and alcohol abuse. For three weeks, we will be providing education, demonstration, and assistance about these recognized issues in several different villages in Bolgatanga.
In order for our teaching to be effectively implemented, we are in need of supplies. This is where your support would be greatly appreciated! We are in need of flashlights for Ghanaian children, dental hygiene kits, wound care kits, malaria bed nets, and coal cooking pots. Each of these items is essential for us to be able to demonstrate ways to improve the health and well-being of the people in the villages in Bolgatanga. Each item serves a vital purpose in either preventing communicable diseases or improving the health of the individuals.
We are thrilled and eager to represent EMSON and the University of Arkansas while in Ghana! And we need your help! A donation, of any monetary value, will help us meet our goal. Your gift today will have a lasting impact as we work together to improve the health of families in Ghana.
