News from Seva

By Sheila Ryan, Seva Coordinator

A big thank-you to everyone for your donations to the Ghana Homeopathy Project. In Seva this means we were able to provide a motorbike for the clinic. Emperor and the team can now easily visit the 25 surrounding villages to see patients. Before this, the old truck would break down daily on roads either washed away by the rains or else hard baked into ruts and pits. Fuel costs are down too!

There are now five homeopaths in training at Seva. They learn together through clinical practice under the supervision of volunteers and supported by weekly phone calls from the UK. I call Emperor at about 7am and hear the cockerels in the background as we decide how best to help the patients.

The clinics are now 50% homeopathic which means that the allopathic drug bill is halved and so the Seva project is on its way to becoming financially sustainable. People already come from many miles away to see the team and patient fees, small as they are, will also help to make the clinics self-supporting.

When I visited for three weeks in October, we studied and saw patients every day from dawn to dusk and often through the night too. Six babies were born during this time, three survived including twins who are now thriving.

Homeopathy helps the midwives to help mother and child in labour; it helps with retained placentas, with breathing difficulties at birth, with bleeding after labour and much more

Truly, everyday miracles are being worked by the team as valued and necessary workers in the local communities.

There is no NHS, no safety net, nowhere else to go. The Seva clinics are a life line. The team works tirelessly to do their best for the people who come to them. It is inspiring to be with them.

The phone bill for a year’s telephone support comes to £150.00.

To replenish the remedy stocks and update books etcetera costs £1000 a year

So little to do so much ☼
