Work in Ghana
Once a year the Uxbridge Health Centre takes part in a medical mission sending a team of doctors, nurses, dentists, optometrists, and other healthcare professionals to Ghana, West Africa where they open a two week health clinic. Upon hearing about the clinic, many people travel days, on foot, to see our medical team. We are incredibly proud of all they accomplish in those two weeks, seeing approximately 9000 patients who cannot afford the medical care which they need. In addition to the two week pop up clinic, GRID is building a fully equipped, 50 bed hospital In Carpenter, Northern Ghana, which will serve approximately 53,000 patients per year.
