During a medical internship, we experienced firsthand the working conditions of rural doctors in Ghana. In particular, there is a lack of essential equipment that those of us from developed countries take for granted. Despite the staff’s medical competence, their hands are often tied due to financial and technical problems. So, we decided to create the Together For Ghana foundation to promote public health in Ghana’s Eastern Region.
We also want to give students who are interested in development assistance the opportunity to participate in our projects.

Amanda Lee Kelsall, a second year Medical Student at the University of Ottawa passed away on January 5, 2014 as a result of a car accident near Pembroke, Ontario. Mission Amanda was created in her memory by her parents with the purpose to carry on the work that the Lord began in Amanda’s life. Two of Amanda’s dreams were to get into Medical School and to go to Africa. She was fortunate to experience both of these. During medical school Amanda completed a medical elective in Ghana. This was such a remarkable experience that she made a commitment to be an ambassador for her host organization – Elective Ghana. Amanda and her parents have been very impressed by Elective Ghana’s commitment, compassion, and desire to assist medical students in gaining meaningful experiences. The Kelsall family contacted the UGME Global Health Program to ask us to help with the continuation of the chance for Elective Ghana experiences for our students. The founder (Sefa) and Elective Ghana Team would be please to assist UOttawa Medical students to organize electives in Ghana, at minimal cost.
