Last year, a select few of us from On-Site Helping Hands embarked on a medical mission to visit the wonderful people of Ghana…including providing some much-needed medical aid to the remote villages there. On-Site provided mobile first-aid treatment clinics to a number of villages, and assisted in the installation of a life-saving water well. With a lack of electricity and running water, these communities struggle daily to obtain essentials that are vital to sheer survival, proper sanitation, and decreasing the spread of diseases. Men, women, and children alike lined up for hours waiting for their turn to receive care. Despite the desperate need they each faced, something amazing happened…over and over…that we didn’t expect to see. No matter how long the wait, how bad the injury or illness, these people would still step aside and let someone else go before them. To be able to help those in their time of need was only surpassed by the opportunity to share in this mission with these wonderful people…and witness such an appreciative, kind, humble, and selfless culture. The communities and people of Ghana desperately need additional continued support and assistance…and it’s our mission to continue these efforts, and expand upon that mission, by enlisting the help of other great organizations that hope to make a difference as well.
For 2018, we’ve chosen to embark on a new journey…with new and permanent goals for Ghana. On-Site Health & Safety, as part of our On-Site Helping Hands mission, will find another amazing team of volunteers heading to Ghana to make a difference…but with a new drive and purpose this year. Our focus for 2018 will be on helping the communities create their own type of “On-Site” mobile care.
Never before have we witnessed a group of communities so eager to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to sustain themselves. We will assist in helping Meaningful Life International with the development of a brand-new mobile care clinic. In addition, our plan involves aiding the communities through creating treatment protocols and helping teach a group of select individuals how to administer first-aid care. There will be a special emphasis on the treatment and prevention of common conditions, such as tuberculosis, cholera, malaria, and typhoid fever...all of which continue to ravage the communities of Ghana.
Our mission is to essentially help Ghana…help themselves. By providing medical-aid training and supplies, we can assist them not only with their desire to help care for their own, but to begin to change the tide of both access and knowledge for a new generation…one that can truly help create a permanent solution for these wonderful people by empowering them with the means and ability to impact their own culture, lives, and future generations to come. Whether here at home or around the globe, On-Site’s Helping Hands continue to make the world a better place…one child, one person, one community, and one country at a time.
