Yesterday was a very meaningful day for SOS team member Demetrius Wingate who saw firsthand the impact of SOS’s work. He met with the Medical Director of Ketu North District Hospital who shared her immense gratitude for the endoscopy tower they just received from SOS. Up until now, the closest one was located an hour away forcing them to “treat patients blindly." #SOSGhanaTrip... See MoreSee Less
Team SOS-- led by Denise Sears with Demetrius Wingate-- on their first full day in Accra, Ghana! After a couple of long days of travel, they had their first day of field visits-- meeting with Parliamentarian James Avedzi, their partner in bringing a massive shipment of supplies to 4 area hospitals, including the Ketu North District Hospital. The team also met the District Medical Director, who shared that the SOS shipment arrived just before the Dzgibe Hospital was going to take out a loan to get an anesthesia machine. Supplies are so scarce that patients often have to pay for them themselves and this often prevents them from seeking care-- making the SOS supplies life-changing for this population. They also had the privilege of delivering a suitcase full of supplies for a local eye care clinic. Check back for more soon! UPSParliament of Ghana#sosghanatrip... See MoreSee Less

Each student volunteer experience is a chance to help local students view themselves as global citizens who can impact the greater good! ... See MoreSee Less
