ABOUT THE MISSION:

The first $500 I raise will be used to cover the cost of two medical supply kits to donate to West Africa AIDS Foundation (WAAF) /IHCC. In 2013, I was able to bring two 50lbs supply kits, which included medications and bandages. These kits directly benefited the clinic and also came in handy when teaching The Driver's First Aid Initiative curriculum.

The second $2,000 I raise will be used to cover the cost of a third medical supply kit, my flight to/from Ghana, and my living expenses while in Ghana. As a first year medical student and certified EMT, I plan to make an impact in several ways. I will volunteer with WAAF and assist with maternal and child health data collection. I also plan to shadow and assist the general surgeon at Aneeja Clinic again. I hope to raise enough funds to bring him a medical supply kit as well.

In addition, I will continue to meet with officials in Ghana to work on Phase 2 of establishing and implementing a Public Private Partnership for The Driver's First Aid Initiative. The first aid course I will be teaching will focus on training community members and commercial drivers in basic first aid skills, including how to respond on a scene of an accident.

For more information and to read a copy of my Proposal, please email me directly, KML65@cornell.edu I can also share with you summaries from my past volunteer experiences in Ghana. In addition, as a former Cornell Study Abroad blogger, my 2010- 2011 Ghana Blog is still active. Feel free to visit my blog website to learn more about my experiences and reflections while in Ghana: http://blogs.cornell.edu/cuakml65/ I will include a link and update for my new blog site soon!
