Dignity and Power – Yonkofa

Emergency and Short-Term medical missions are able to process large numbers of patients during a limited time. However, medical mission workers constantly see simple diseases that have progressed to painful, disabling, or fatal conditions, because of no access to early or preventive medical intervention. Also, on a short-term mission, diseases in their early stages may be overlooked as patients are processed en masse.

The Yonkofa Project aims to help the people of rural Ghana have access to healthcare. Wellness is established not only with medicine, but with a state of mind. We are an aid to strengthen a community, to give them the power to treat their own. Yonkofa means “friendship” and friends respect friends.

Become part of the solution, join us in creating an ongoing friendship with the people of Ghana.
