Akwaaba (“Welcome”) to my Medical Holiday Journal

My son Orion and his friend Allen traveled together for months in South Africa, and east and west Africa before settling in Ghana’s central region, where they made the commitment to provide assistance to the local inhabitants in the areas of medicine, clean water access, agriculture and business/micro-finance. It is exciting work bringing mainly college students from Europe and the US to join “brigades” to help in these areas.

Recently I went to join him and his team and spent time offering medical treatment and education to the mostly tribal communities he was serving. It was a wonderful trip and here’s a pdf of the travel journal I put together.
