Old But Gold: Medical Equipment For Rural Ghana

Looking for medical devices for a hospital and paramedic service in rural Ghana.

Together4Ghana from Together For Ghana e.V.Write a message

The Presbyterian Hospital Donkorkrom is the only hospital in the Afram Plain region providing health care to an area over 5000 km ² with more than 100.000 inhabitants. During our Medical Internship, we experienced firsthand, the working conditions of rural doctors in Ghana. There is a lack of essential equipment that those of us from developed countries take for granted. Despite the staff´s medical competence, their hands are often tied due to financial and technical reasons. 
Because of these experiences, we decided to create the Together4Ghana organization to promote public health in Ghana`s Eastern Region. 
 
To fight this medical shortage in Ghana’s eastern region, we launched the “Old But Gold Project”. Our main goal is to provide technical support to Donkorkrom’s local hospital and rescue services. In particular, the hospital provides crucial medical services for Obstetrics and Gynecology, diagnostic devices are of paramount importance for these specialties. However, these devices are very expensive when new, which is why we plan to obtain good used equipment from donations. With your help, we can make a major contribution to the improvement of medical care and enable many people to receive high-quality medicine. 
 
If you are in a medical profession and have access to decommissioned equipment, we would be happy if you contact us (together4ghana@gmail.com). Otherwise, donate for the purchase of new goods. You can find the equipment list on our website (https://together4ghana.org/#projects).
