Ghanaian Women’s Association of Georgia to Host Second Annual Fundraising Dinner in Support of Maternity Care
On Saturday, June 24, 2017, GWAG will host its second annual fundraising dinner in support of maternity care in Ghana. This year’s event will continue to raise awareness of the challenges faced by women during pregnancy, labor, and delivery in some of Ghana’s most underserved communities. The goal is raise about $25,000 to help sustain the hospitals the organization assisted during last year’s fundraiser (Elmina Urban Healthcare Center, our adopted ward, and Oda Regional Hospital) and to furnish three new maternity wards in the Volta Region with medical supplies to include delivery and post-delivery beds, mattresses, pillows, curtains, incubators, bed pans, catheters, thermometers, drip pans, gloves, and masks. We invite all friends of GWAG, and the general public, to join us as we strive to reach our goal.
