The HOPE clinic building in Volta, is now complete and is a great place for ongoing training and seeing of local patients. There is also accommodation for visiting volunteers, who will be hosted by Emperor whose vision has been behind this clinic from its inception.
The clinic in Kumasi is newly painted and renovated and will soon be ready for patients.
The REST Clinic in Tema is up and running.

October 2019 took me on my third trip to Ghana, which means I've spent a quarter of the last two years in this beautiful country. It’s becoming like a second home and on this visit, I found my initial marvelling curiosity at every sight and smell replaced by a warm familiarity. I welcomed the engulfing heat on leaving the airport, the beaming faces to greet me and, after a few days in the capital, returning to my volunteer bedroom in the Volta region. Yet I still noticed new details everywhere. I heard goats sneeze, saw tiny birds fall from trees and listened to the crescendoing chorus of frogs after the rain. I explored hard to reach rural villages, tried more delicious local food and watched lightning crack the sky every other day. And all the time, homeopathy was humming away in the background. Often just quietly, with regular patients coming for their BP checks and children brought in weary with fever. Then at times with a huge hive of activity; patients suffering from strokes and asthma attacks - others arriving by motorbike with crippling stomach cramps in the middle of the night. A constant reminder that for a full immersion in homeopathic practice, there is no better place to be.
