Dear MUSC community,
Again this summer, several faculty, staff, residents, nurses, students and community members will travel to this remote village of Okurase to join with Ghanaian health professionals to conduct another annual Village Health Outreach, among several other self-sustaining initiatives.
Last year's response to requests for scrubs and clothing was amazing, and we thank each and every one of you!
This year, we would like for you to consider donating some office supplies that will help keep the administrative side of our health efforts flowing. For example, we are requesting any of the following:
Folders with brads for patient health forms
Thank you all for such great support, without it, we cannot do the extent of the work that we do!
If anyone has other items in mind that we should consider, please feel free to contact us!
We will be focusing on:
This remote village is home to 2,500 people, of whom 1,400 are children. This village has no clean water, lack of proper sanitation, limited medical care or educational opportunities, malnutrition, and food security issues. (See Photo Exhibit on 2nd floor of library).
