Human health and WASH projects
We work on so-called WASH projects. That means
Water – sanitation – hygiene. Water and toilet facilities are combined into one unit.
The health care of the people is a central concern to us. In Ghana, there is a so-called cash and go system in the healthcare system. First the payment, then the treatment. If the patient has no money, he/she is not or insufficiently cared for.
Our team has experienced many situations in which even severely injured patients, in acute danger of loosing their life, have not been treated. As a registered pediatric nurse Bettina Landgrafe could not accept this situation and wanted to change something about it.
Madamfo Ghana ensures that as many people as possible have access to qualified medical treatment.
On the other hand, we help girls in particular through the WASH projects. This gives them the opportunity to go to school during their menses.
If the school has no toilet facilities, the girls stay away from the school, because they have no way to change their hygiene products.
You can specifically support these projects with a small monthly donation, since this gives us planning security for planned operations and treatments.
Projects on the topic: Human health and WASH projects
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.
Clinics in the Tain District
Our vision: Stable and sustainable healthcare provision in a remote area in the Brong Ahafo Region in Ghana.
SURGERIES – MEDICAL TREATMENT – MEDICINES
In joint collaboration with the project region’s Department of Health, we pay for the patients’ treatments and surgeries.
Yamah Health Center
The ramshackle building of the region’s only health center is in danger of collapsing – and it is occupied by vampire bats.
„Rtl wir helfen Kindern“-Foundation children’s hospital
Thanks to the support of the “RTL Wir helfen Kindern“ Foundation, we were able to built a children’s hospital with an additional department for prevention and family planning (Child Health Reproductive Unit) in Brodi, a village located in the Brong Ahafo Region.
Bonita Health Center
The Bonita Health Center was built in 2009 and consists of an emergency room with a pharmacy, a department for men, a department for women, the „RTL Wir helfen Kindern“ Foundation Hospital for Children, a department that focusses on prevention, disease control and birth control, as well as housing units for the nurses.
Maternity Programme in Traboum
In Ghana, the ratio of maternal mortality and newborn morbidity has increased dramatically. In December 2014, the number of deaths of mothers and newborns has increased from 350 stillbirths per 100,000 live births to 380 stillbirths per 100,000 live births.
