Week 2 Public Health

Clinic week is over and we are starting our public health week in the schools. The kids are too cute and hopefully they'll learn something (as will we).  Time is going by so quickly but it's has all been amazing thus far.

Water Filter Project

Imagine a jumbo jet full of children crashing and all those kids tragically and senselessly losing their lives. This is not far from reality since lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills children at a rate equivalent of a jumbo jet crashing…every four hours. Now imagine this: You, living in the United States, capable of providing the direct means of keeping these children alive with a small donation. A place where your money goes directly to providing clean water for children and adults alike. Would you do it?
Do we have the ability to cause a ripple in this river of hardship and difficulty associated with lack of access to clean water? Today, I tell you that we can. Join Reach4Ghana (R4G) in its quest to provide clean water for hundreds of families in Ghana for years to come. A contribution of simply $25 will buy one large filter which will provide clean water for a family for THREE years and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to purchasing each filter. That means NO overhead cost and hence, you personally know that you are giving the life saving gift of water to those in desperate need.
These filters were developed by an MIT professor and are made locally in Ghana through a sustainable organization known as Pure Home Water. Hence, we are hoping to simultaneously help support their efforts in providing clean water as well as stimulate the local economy.

Who We Are: R4G is composed of medical, pharmacy, and physical therapy students in collaboration with physicians, nurses, physical therapists, and pharmacists that aim to provide sustainable medical relief as well as rural health education to five villages in the Volta region of Ghana. This Friday, we begin our journey and are asking you to help give the gift of clean water to those in need.
While you can’t hear them, children RIGHT NOW families are in desperate need for our help. Though we are small organization, we know that with your help we may be able to make a dent in this gross epidemic that CAN BE PREVENTED.
Below is the Paypal account for where you may be able to donate any monetary amount towards our goal. Remember $25=you giving clean water to a family for three years.

Thank you for your help and please spread the message along. It is our responsibility to take care of those who do not have access to our means. Let’s get out there and make that difference

What a great Gala dinner!

Thanks to everyone who came to the 4th Annual R4G Gala Dinner Saturday evening, which I'm sure many will agree was our best ever. It was a great show of support to this year's team and the organization. Many thanks to those who donated the venue, the silent auction items, and everyone who helped make the event a big success. Thank you to Zack McDowell and Dr. Whitehurst-Cooke for making remarks and encouraging the team and all those present. Zack summarized very well the past, present, and future of REACH 4 Ghana, mentioning many of our key partners, and his video is below:
