The Senase Project is happy to announce the purchasing of key equipment for the Health Center in Senase, Ghana, thanks to two major donations. Both Campbell University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine (the Global Medicine Club, to be exact) as well as the Ithaca Athletic Training Students’ Association (led by Jim Quist of Ithaca College) spearheaded fundraisers that brought in a total of $551.00 (bringing our total funds raised for the Health Clinic to $651.00).

Our Partnership with Ghana Health Services

We are proud to continue our long standing partnership with Ghana Health Services in Berekum and look forward to continuing to able to support them in such a capacity that it allows the clinic to function and grow on it’s own, ultimately becoming self-sustaining while offering the best possible healthcare to the people of Senase.

“On behalf of the Director of GHS (Ghana Health Services) as well as the entire management team, Senase Health Clinic Health Committee and staff, we wish to express our profound gratitude to you and your team [The Senase Project]. We promise to put all of the donated equipment to good use to serve the purpose for which it was sent.”
