We made it!

Greetings from Accra,

After a day and a bit of travelling the Team has made it into Ghana. Kirstin and I arrived around 3 pm Ghana time and were met at the airport by a local contact. The first thing we both noticed was the intense heat and humidity, it is clear that staying properly hydrated is a must! Dr. Hunter and Dr. Luginnah made it in safely late last night so we were able to meet at breakfast and run over the initial plan. We will be spending the week in Accra to meet contacts and organize supplies. We hope to arrange for a car to take us up to Wa this weekend. The people we have met so far have been extremely friendly and accommodating. Last night we were able to sample some local beer and food, both very delicious. The team is excited to get everything going and spirits are high!
All the best,


  1. Sounds like you are off to a great start - safe travels!

  2. Glad you could make it Kirst! Love you! Cant wait to hear all the stories!

  3. So glad you made it safe and sound. We were on the radio together on Monday. The whole clinic wishes you well and will be watching your progress. Take care of yourself!
