Each year Ghana Make a Difference hosts and organizes a variety of different volunteer groups. Annual women's trip, youth trip, medical trip, etc.. Every group has had a wonderful experience serving in Ghana. Each groups impact is known and appreciated by those who are served. We have observed that each group brings unique skills and abilities to the people of Ghana.
During this woman's trip it has been so cool to see these women helping and empowering other women. The ladies on the annual GMAD women’s trip visited the labor and delivery ward in a nearby hospital where they passed out delivery bags to women who needed them.
The women’s volunteer group enjoyed holding newborn babies at the local hospital. They taught the mamas how to swaddle the babies so they’d sleep longer and the mothers were excited! They all fell in love with a 3 week baby who weighed 1.7 pounds at birth! Her mom was so touched to receive a delivery bag.
The ladies on this women's trip have focused a lot of their efforts helping new mothers. They have been giving cloth diaper kits to new moms that need them for their babies. The women would light up when they were told they were washable just like our clothes and could be used for their next child, and the next child.
We are grateful for the ladies who attended this years women's trip and look forward to the many more trips and the good they will do.
