Ghana, Healthcare

Ghana cooperation programme

Number: 130.1001

The cooperation programme groups together all Mission 21's projects in Ghana and orients them towards a common objective. This enhances the impact of the individual projects. By donating to the cooperation programme, you will make it possible for your donation to go to those projects in Ghana where money is most urgently needed. This avoids over- or under-financing.

Support is channelled through the organisation of the Evangelical Mission in Solidarity (EMS) in Stuttgart. This organisation is responsible for the projects, and Mission 21 participates in the funding.

Backgrund information

Mission 21's involvement in Ghana is aimed at improving healthcare. Back in 1828, Ghana became one of the first countries to which the Basel Mission sent missionaries. The work accomplished here by the Basel Mission led to the founding of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG), which is now the country's oldest and one of the largest christian churches.

Today, Mission 21 still maintains its presence in Ghana, where it supports projects in the healthcare and education sectors.

Facilities provided by the PCG include health centres, basic healthcare services, district hospitals, clinics and nursing schools. Mission 21 supports the PCG's work in the healthcare sector amd also in the promotion of interfaith dialogue.
