ISMS Team New York completes mission to Ghana

ISMS Team NY in Ghana

The staff of Holy Family Hospital welcomed ISMS Team New York for its Mission to Techiman, Ghana this March. It is the only large hospital that covers a large region of Ghana and provides care for over 250, 000 patients every year. Yet the hospital has skeleton staff with one official surgeon and one official gynecologist.

Summary: ISMS Michigan Team’s mission to Kakamega, Kenya – 2013

The town of Kakamega lies in Kenya’s second most populous county about 30 kilometers north of the equator. Within this county, Kakamega Provincial General Hospital has a catchment area of over 4 million. After the ISMS Pediatric mission to Kakamega took place last year, the need for medical attention in this region was so outstanding that a new ISMS team (Team Michigan) was created with a goal to return to this area for their first mission.
