During 2007 our project has gone from strength to strength. We now have regular homeopathic clinics in two slum areas of Accra a homeopathic training programme for health care professionals, and two students have bursaries to train as homeopaths.
Mel Dupres, who volunteered at the project in September, had a wonderful experience and has decided to go back for two years in January. This opens up exciting possibilities for developing work in the slum clinics and villages and for education in Accra.
Education is an important aspect of the Ghana Homeopathy Project. We now work together with Ghanaian homeopath Julius Berdie, who several years ago was trained by the group Homeopaths Without Borders, and was delighted that homeopaths were again visiting Ghana.
I returned to Ghana in September after one year. This time Ghana felt like a second home – we have made so many friends and contacts there.
Pastor John, from Mafi Seva village, had been unable to see clearly for some time. Emperor gave him Ruta 30 and his vision improved greatly.
74 year old woman is brought to the clinic after midnight on the back of a truck from a village fifteen miles away. She is in terrible pain from urine retention.
Fundraising has to be an integral part of any charitable endeavour. In 2007 we organised two highly successful fundraisers. After returning from Portland where we held a fantastic African party in May which raised £300, I decided to do the same in London.
How the project began The Ghana Homeopathy Project developed as a result of an exploratory visit to Ghana by UK homeopath Linda Shannon in 2006. Having worked and studied in India, where homeopathic clinics and colleges are spread throughout the country, Linda had first hand experience of the potentially valuable contribution homeopathy can make towards […]
October 17th ﬁnds us touching down in Accra, capital of Ghana, knowing that the schedule will be full on. We struggle through the airport with our suitcases full of books, remedies and bottles all donated by friends in the UK. A lot has happened since Linda’s ﬁrst visit only 5 months ago at the invitation […]
On 25th April 2006, I arrived in Ghana with the intention of introducing homeopathy to a group of interested people in Accra, the capital, and in 2 primary care centres located in the villages of Seva and Akwakwa.
