Ghana clinic: Filling medical void

This shipment was, surely, a gift that would keep on giving. A group in Ghana put labour and love into the building of a much needed medical clinic. Their resources were few, but they managed to get the construction completed and then wrote to us. What does it take to furnish a clinic? More than one might imagine but, happily, items that we typically receive from the generous Hong Kong community. Medical provision, of course: surgical items, hospital beds, crutches, and the like. As well, though, a clinic needs tables, chairs, computers, office furniture and equipment, catering supplies (stove, pots, pans, crockery, cutlery), clothing for the patients, toys for the children’s section and even extra touches such as pictures for the walls, curtains for the windows. Additionally, as the electricity supply is intermittent in their area, we sent a generator. This clinic was literally empty one week and, just seven days later, was open for service. It is just one more example, of many, where we help others help others.
