Human health

The health care of people is a central concern of ours. In Ghana, the health care system is based on cash and go. First the payment, then the treatment. If the patient has no money, he will not be treated at all, or only insufficiently.

Our team has experienced many situations in which even seriously injured patients in acute danger of death were not treated. As a registered pediatric nurse Bettina Landgrafe could not accept this situation and wanted to change something about it.

Madamfo Ghana ensures, that on one hand, as many people as possible, have access to qualified medical treatment. You can support us specifically with a small monthly donation, this gives us planning security for operations and treatments.

On the other hand, we improve the local infrastructure in the health sector by building maternity wards, hospitals and health centres.

Through targeted educational projects, for example our Maternity Training Program, women are trained in antenatal courses and future fathers are taught, how a child develops in the womb. All this is done by local nurses and midwives, who are familiar with the cultural background and language of the people.


Projects on the topic: Human health

Clinic for Yaw Owusukrom

For most of the inhabitants, the approx. 5-6 km distance to the nearest clinic is hardly manageable, as they do not have private or public transport. Especially in case of illness, this is a very big problem.

Clinic for Praprababida

The nearest medical facility is about 15 km away. This is an unmanageable distance for pregnant women and small children, which is why they only go to the clinic when they are already seriously ill.

Coronavirus – Containing the spread together

The whole world is still in an unprecedented state of emergency. The disease COVID-19, which is caused by the corona virus, has claimed many lives and completely changed all our everyday lives.

Maternal mortality and disease rates among newborns are still high in Ghana.

Kyekyewere Health Center

In recent decades, the population has risen sharply, which is why health care is no longer guaranteed for everyone. The clinic has only a very small room for patients who need inpatient care.
