In samenwerking met enkele vrienden en het AM (Academisch Ziekenhuis Maastricht) is vervolgens in 1990 de stichting ‘St John Hospital Ghana’ in het leven geroepen, met het doel het St John of God Hospital te steunen om een betere gezondheidszorg te verwezenlijken.
Objective / Policy plan
Our vision is to improve the health situation and thus the life situation of young orthopedic patients in Ghana. To achieve this, a specialist center for orthopedics has been developed as part of the St. John of God Hospital in Duayaw Nkwanta. The center also acts as a national training center for orthopedic doctors, physiotherapists and prosthetic makers. The aim is to link Dutch health institutions with the Ghanaian.
The finances are obtained through actions and donations. The assets have been transferred entirely to the ING bank. The treasurer is authorized to manage the money, after consultation with the other board members in the monthly foundation meetings.
After submission by SJHG of a project in Ghana, it is decided, after discussion in the board meeting, whether, how and when the project in question will be supported.
In 2012, € 5600, – were spent on the so – called Motivation Fund and € 15000, – on the administration building.
