    Story

    We volunteered in MPraeso, Ghana with Original Volunteers in July 2018 - our first time - it was life changing. We found a young boy who had been laying on the floor of his family hut for 4 weeks with a broken arm and hip because his family couldn't afford treatment. We helped save a young mothers leg and with simple antibiotics enabled a young girl to smile and open her mouth again after 3 years of pain. Many people live in remote villages with no access to running water, sanitation, health education or care. Although Original Volunteers do a Community Outreach visit once a week there are hundreds of villages they just can't get to. We want to help develop a more sustainable model to support volunteers to deliver health education as well as treatment. Our vision is to buy a four wheel ambulance/vehicle and medical equipment to reach the 100+ villages that still do not have access to a clinic or volunteering services. By providing a vehicle and a model of follow up volunteers will pay for the community outreach experience (which will fund petrol, dressings, etc ) and donate a week of their time to volunteer. This is how Original Volunteers build schools, drill boreholes and continue to change the world for these wonderful people. We would be really grateful for any support you can give us. Every £1 donation will make a big difference. Nothing is spent on bureaucracy - everything will go the project and people. We return 13th July 19 and will be able to share the real impact your donations make. The little boy at the beginning is David who we found with fractures. The little boy below is also David after surgeries and hospital treatment. He can walk again and looks like a different child. Big Hugs for Ghana. Thank you for reading about our project.

      14/7/19 Ghana Update Day 1: It’s been emotional already. We did a follow up visit on David today As we walked down to David’s home we saw a small boy in his Sunday best. Fred & l were both overwhelmed. Happy tears but lots of them. His family were there to greet us including his grandmother and great grandmother who they told us was 115 years old (Ghana time we think). Once again we remain so very grateful for your donations - they changed David’s life. Big Hugs from Ghana ❤️❤️❤️🇬🇭 https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/freya-allen

      To our family, friends and the people we don’t even know who so generously donate funds, clothes and football kit to help with our Ghana Community Outreach project - we have an ambulance 🚑. The South West Service have donated a Mercedes Sprinter Ambulance and provided kit and taxed and insured it until it leaves British Shores. The difference this ambulance and your donations will make to people unable to access or afford healthcare such as David below or our other patients is beyond words. We will be forever humbled and grateful ❤️❤️❤️🇬🇭
