From cutting open a juicy pineapple with a machete to trucking over miles and miles of red dirt road, there is no doubt that we had quite a few adventures in Ghana. But despite the innumerable memories made, it’s still easy for me to pinpoint my favorites. I’ll never forget listening to devoted doctors explain their serious need for basic medical supplies. Being able to play a part in helping these hospitals receive medical supplies has been meaningful in a pretty indescribable way – which is ironic and unfortunate considering I’m trying to describe it right now! When Dr. Robert was showing us around Nandom District Hospital in the Upper West, he was so proud to show us how they had used donated material to make curtains for the entire hospital. Exam rooms now had privacy curtains; beds had dividers, and more. Another moment that really stood out to me was when we visited Lawra District Hospital and saw white coats donated from University Hospitals – Case Western. Here were the same kind of coats I had seen doctors wearing during my undergraduate shadowing experiences, but all the way in Ghana! It’s incredible to see everything come full circle. The above photo epitomizes this feeling: you can see a shipment being packed at the MedWish International warehouse in Cleveland, Ohio, and the same container being unpacked in Ghana. The photo is actually the one with Dr. Robert's curtain fabric - you can see it on the left!
