Father's House Ghana was initially conceived as aa place to provide shelter and belonging to children in need of a loving home. As we immersed ourselves in the community, however, we quickly realized that we were surrounded by opportunities to serve our neighbors in many ways—including health and medical services.
Medical Aid in Ghana
We have recently acquired land adjacent to Father’s House on which to build a Community Wellness & Education Center. The center will provide approximately 3,000 people within a 2 mile radius easy access to basic medical care that they currently do not have.
The voodoo/traditional beliefs that are prevalent in our community affect their physical health and well-being also. Because it is simply not practical or possible for most of our neighbors to obtain the care they need, they often resort to "traditional" cures and witch doctors--sometimes with devastating results. Malaria, for example, is extremely common and easy to cure with early diagnosis and treatment, but often goes undiagnosed until it has progressed to the point of affecting the spinal cord and brain and is life-threatening.
Our Mission in Ghana
We have seen many times how meeting the physical needs of our community opens doors for us to share the life-saving, eternity-changing love of Jesus. We are excited to see how God will use our future clinic to meet the needs of our community and beyond.
