GRID and NEA have been implementing health programs and hosting international health teams in Northern Ghana for years. Our goal all along has been to improve the health care in the Carpenter area in a sustainable manner, and one possible next step towards that long-term goal is a hospital in the area.
For that reason, we are studying the feasibility of building a hospital in Carpenter. Part of this feasibility study includes collecting information about building plans and costs, and to that end we have applied to Engineering Ministries International Canada (eMi Canada) for assistance.
eMi Canada is a non-profit Christian development organization mobilizing architects, engineers and other design professionals who donate their skills to help children and families around the world step out of poverty and into a world of hope.
eMi Canada is recruiting professional volunteers to conduct a site visit and develop hospital plans so that the GRID and NEA Boards can make a fully-informed, prayerful decision about the advisability of a hospital. A full team description is available on the eMi Canada site.
If you are an engineer, architect, or design professional interested in contributing to or learning more about this project, please contact Kevin Wiens of eMi Canada.
