MOTEC Project 9 Rolls Into Action

...

The class of 1983 of the University of Ghana Medical School Korle Bu in line with Motec Project 9 - ‘Diaspora's contribution to medical education through investment in human resources, provision of educational material and development of infrastructure’ - raised funds from members resident in UK in support of education. The doctors guided by senior members of Motec raised a substantial amount of funds to purchase computers for schools in the suburbs of Accra. The institutions included  St Mary’s Catholic Girls Basic School at Korle Gonno,  James Town Methodist Basic School, Korle Gonno Roman Catholic Boys School and Korle Gonno Methodist  ‘A’ Basic School. Pictures show the presentation of the computers to the Schools in Accra by representatives of the group.
 Sincere gratitude to the group especially the Motec members in helping support of schools around the teaching hospital in Accra. Bravo Christine and Sarah, executives of UGMS 83 and the class of 1983. Motec may approach the group to support the construction of a safe infrastructure for Abisim Nankese in the Eastern Region which is currently led by School and Health Foundation of Ireland.

Stockwood Park Academy in Luton, donates to Motec

...

An amount of £310 has been donated by the Stockwood Park Academy  Luton to Motec.
The amount will be put into a fund to build a kindergarten at Nankese Abisim in Ghana to replace the
thatch structure the children are currently using.
Gratitude to the school children and the authorities. Pictures above show the main link teacher Alyson and other pupils/students of the academy. Motec Welfare Officer Mrs Linda Bigham represented Motec.

The school breaks for the summer today and it hoped that when it reopens in September Motec can formallymake a formal representation to express our profound gratitude and show the school what the money has been used for.
Motec is currently looking for a school(s) in UK to assist in fund raising to build Nankese Abisim L A Primary and Kindergarten School. The project is part of the School and Health Foundation of Ireland's collaborative efforts for Ghana.
Any contribution will count!

Breast work in Ghana June 2017
...

The team were fully engaged with the public and hospital activity. Among others, the team delivered the following:
Breast clinic at Akosombo and Accra; Breast awareness sessions at Yilo Krobo High School ( over 1,500 attendance; Public awareness lecture at Akosombo Apostolic Church; and Surgical work at Akosombo VRA Hospital.

Pictures show some of the activities by the team in Ghana.

Bravo Charles, Sanjay, Akosombo and all the institutions involved.
Next trip will be October.

June 17th-25th 2017 working visit to Ghana
...

Mr Sanjay Baldota, breast surgeon was at Akosombo team this last month. He joined
Dr Charles Arhinful of Akosombo in running breast awareness programmes, breast screening and operating during the visit.

Mr Ofori-Atta was joined by residents from Korle Bu in surgeries at Koforidua.
20th June was his busiest day. 

In furtherance of the aims of Motec - School and Health Foundation (SHF) Mr Ofori-Atta held planned meetings in Ghana. He travelled from Accra to meet the Regional Directors of Health and Education at Koforidua, District Directors at the Municipal Assembly at Suhum and a considerable time at Nankese Abisim, a village about 18km North West of Koforidua, the Eastern Region capital. The final meeting took place at Nsawam at the Orthopaedic training centre where children and adults with disabilities are supported by the centre. 
The Motec - Schools and Health Foundation of Dublin aims at constructing a primary school at Nankese Abisim for the village which provides basic education for about six villages. 
The other is the construction of a special needs centre for children at Nsawam utilising and expanding the existing services there. Notably the Government of Ghana will play an active part in these facilities in order to sustain the projects such as provision of teachers at both facilities. The local community at Abisim will provide free support such as sand and manual labour for the construction of the school.

Motec has also been offered the opportunity by the Regional Director of Education to use a centre in the capital to run workshops to train teachers to identify children with special needs and to learn how they help to these children. It is a welcome move as Ghana has no training centres for teachers to look after children with special needs. 

A Motec team for children with special needs has been formed to support both projects and it will be led by Elaine. It is expected of the new team to link up schools in England and Ireland with the two centres. A fact finding and teaching visit to Ghana has been planned by the team has been planned for the latter part of the year.

Pictures from the June visit are as follows:

Mr Ofori-Atta meeting the chief of Nankese Abisim and the elders of the village;
Mr Ofori-Atta with the teaching staff of the kindergarten and primary school;
The kindergarten classroom;
Mr Ofori-Atta at the orthopaedic training centre at Nsawam with some of the management and the Member of Parliament for Nsawam honourable Annoh-Dompreh

Motec holds talks with the Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons (Motec GCPS Project)

...

After five years of deliberations, Motec and the Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons (GCPS) are close to starting a training programme for Ghanaian doctors in UK which will form part of their training programme towards the Ghana College Final Fellowship Exit exams held in Accra. The training will be a reciprocal gain for the NHS and the Ghana College. Some aspects of the training will also involve volunteer consultant surgeons supporting training within Ghana as part of Motec's on going training drive. Motec has a programme of  short term training for Surgeons, Anesthetists, Nurses, theatre staff at Georges, Northwick Park and Harpenden Spire Hospitals in UK for a period up to six months benefiting Kumasi Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, Koforidua St Joseph's, Sefwi Asafo St John of God, and Akosombo VRA Hospitals all in Ghana. Long term training programmes have already been implemented for surgeons from the Military and Tamale Teaching Hospitals for the past two years.  The additional training represents a significant shift from a selected few to a more constructive national training programme for Ghana. A similar collaboration has been in place for the West African College of Surgeons. These have been facilitated by Prof Nigel Standfield of the London postgraduate School of Surgery. The meeting was attended by the Rector of the Ghana College Professor Plange-Rhule, Chairman of the Faculty of Surgery - Prof S. Debrah, Vice Chairman of Surgery - Mr John Nkrumah-Mills and the General Secretary of the College. Motec was represented by Mr. Peter Dyson, Prof Nigel Standfield and Mr. Ofori-Atta. Both parties are expected to sign a memorandum of understanding based on discussions held in Accra on the 4th of May 2017

We are grateful to the Ghana College and Prof Standfield for making it possible for the doctors in Ghana to benefit from UK training. Both parties are keen to ensure that the surgeons return to Ghana. So far, it is reassuring that all doctors and nurses in Motec training programme for the past 7 years have all returned to provide clinical services and some tuition in Ghana. Other projects that Motec held meetings with authorities in Ghana included a School and Health Foundation led projects on a special needs centre for children and a primary school which were both welcomed by the Ghana Health and Ghana Education Services. Nsawam and a village in the Eastern region. Have been put forward by the Regional Director of Health of Eastern Region and members of the public.

Motec in Burkina Faso

Four Motec volunteers have been involved in delivering a symposium on Breast Cancer and ankle and foot trauma at the West African College of Surgeons Scientific meeting at Ougadougou, Burkina Faso. The Motec team in the capital of Burkina from 27th February to 1st March, 2017.
The team flew into Accra the weekend before flying into Ougadougou. Mr Ofori-Atta linked Motec with the World Orthopaedic Concern-UK (WOC) and The British Association of Ankle and Foot Surgeons (BOFAS) for the symposium on foot injuries.
Three presenters run the foot programme. The breast care seminar was run by Motec led by Mr Steven Goh and joined by Miss Natasha Jiwa from UK and Dr Charles Arhinful from VRA hospital, Akosombo. The presentations were well received. Next year's programme is expected to be in the Gambia in 2018 and Motec is expected to run similar programmes.
