Help fund Keta Hospital in Ghana

$655 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 12 people in 17 days

Keta Hospital is a small, regional hospital in Ghana that serves a number of villages around the area. I, along with a few other TouroCOM medical students, were able to travel to this remote area of Ghana on a medical mission trip this past December. It was an honor to be able to learn from the doctors at this hospital, who were well educated and compassionate about their patients.

Although the hospital had a great staff, the one thing that stood out to me was the amount of people waiting for the emergency waiting room (waiting area rather, because most of them were sitting outside in the glaring sun). There were only 6 beds in the ER and around 10 times as many people waiting to get medical care. Some of them never even saw a doctor. The underwhelming amount of beds and space in the emergency room left me and the other students in dismay. That is why I am asking you to donate just a few dollars that will go toward the Keta hospital so they can afford to buy new beds for the emergency room!

The chief physician also mentioned they are trying to raise funds for their first ambulance. Without an ambulance, they cannot bring the most urgent patients in need of immediate critical care to the hospital. Unfortunately, a lot of people never make it to the hospital in time for the care they need. 

The people of Ghana are some of the kindest, caring people I have ever met in my life. It would be amazing if you could donate towards this cause and help the wonderful people of Keta and the surrounding areas. Anything helps, even $1!! Thanks for your time and support :)
