EVERY 10 SECONDS SOMEONE DIES FROM A STROKE WORLDWIDE!
In Ghana, stroke is the fourth leading cause of death and the leading cause of adult disability. The effects of stroke can range from disabilities in self-care, mobility, swallowing, communication and cognition. Without the necessary resources and services, many survivors end up incapable of leading dignified, meaningful and productive lives and are dependent on their loved ones - even for simple everyday needs and tasks.
Access to rehabilitation services such as occupational, physical and speech therapy would substantially improve overall function and quality of life of stroke survivors, however, there is little to no access to services in Ghana or throughout West Africa.
WE ARE FIGHTING TO CHANGE THAT!
GoTHERAPY, Inc has partnered with Greenhills School of Health Science to open up the FIRST STROKE REHABILITATION CENTER IN GHANA.
This center will give stroke survivors the opportunity to regain their overall strength and function to live meaningful and productive lives. In addition, this facility will equip the community with the skills and resources to prevent stroke.
WITH YOUR HELP WE CAN GIVE STROKE SURVIVORS A SECOND CHANCE AT LIFE!
