We embark on series of community outreaches in different locations in Ghana. Included in the outreaches are; health education and screening on topics such as hypertension, HIV/AIDS, malaria, maternal health, food and nutrition, diabetes, general hepatitis B screening and vaccination etc.

 

Medical lovers e.g. students, professionals etc. are also placed in different hospitals in the country to assist medical professionals at different departments.

 

Series of visits to different orphan houses or care homes all in the name of good health care.
