DoctorsAct Ghana Christmas at Home of Excellence Report

Practicing medical humanitarian action is about helping strangers; people you have never met and may never see again. It is an act of protest against the suffering of others. That's why DoctorsAct Ghana decided to crown the year with a visit to the Home of Excellence and Underprivileged Children in Tema, Ghana on 24th December, 2016 to share the love of the Christmas season with the children, mainly orphans, and workers of the home.

The owner and mother of the Home, Madam Amanda gladly received our team and formally welcomed us home. She then introduced all the children and staff.

The 25-member-team which comprised of doctors, nurses and social workers provided free medical screening with ophthalmologists, dentists and pediatrician for an estimated 150 children and caregivers in the home.

Our health resource persons took the children through basic personal care and hygiene tips, especially on how to keep their hands clean to prevent contracting diseases any and how to properly brush the teeth in other to maintain proper oral hygiene.

All hundred and fifty children were provided with food, drinks, gifts and good music.

After the screening the medical team played fun Christmas games with the kids and joined them on the dance floor to some Christmas tunes.

DoctorsAct Ghana appreciates the hardwork of all volunteers and donors for their contributions towards the success of this project.

Alone we can do little, together we can do so much. Cheers to a wonderful 2016 and a better 2017.

Happy New Year!

DoctorsAct Ghana Board
