Red Cross in Northern Ghana

Some people have asked me about donations to the relief efforts in northern Ghana. I know that the Red Cross/Crescent is active here. Their donation site is http://donate.ifrc.org/. You can specify that you want to donate to the relief efforts in northern Ghana.

We will be visiting Ghana on a medical mission to provide primary care at several villages. What does Engineers without Borders do in northern Ghana? - Maggie

Hi Maggie,

In northern Ghana, Engineers Without Borders mainly provides support to local governmental institutions like the Ministry of Food and Agriculture. We help them develop their skills in project management, planning, monitoring and evaluation, stakeholder facilitation and more.

Basically we're helping to increase the capacities of the permanent institutions that are working towards Ghana's development.

We don't do anything specifically related to disaster relief -- we work in long-term development.

EWB's strategy is a bit different in other countries. If you're interested, you can find out more at www.ewb.ca.

Dear Luke - We are leaving this weekend for Ghana. I read that the rains were a problem in the north where we are going. Are the roads passable?
Best Regards,
Maggie
