15 Jun Chasing Waterfalls and Chatting About Hygiene in Ghana
Written by Kali Burnell and Sarindi Kumari, 2014 West Africa Global Health Program Leaders.
Sweat. Shaky calves. Team building. And an unreal mountain landscape. What do all of these things have in common? Just our 2014 Global Health Early Summer team getting into the groove of all that is Ghana!
The next day, we kicked off our journey back to the hustling bustling city of Accra where we set out to explore some of the most common local foods during our scavenger food hunt. We got to explore and enjoy dishes like fufu, banku, rice balls, and more. The following few days were most certainly educational to say the least, we felt more than privileged to meet with national control programs for HIV and Tuberculosis, go behind the scenes at one of the largest teaching hospitals in all of Africa, and discuss issues of sanitation and poverty stricken areas within Ghana.
It’s been busy, busy, busy and we’ve still got lots of work to do!
Until the next time…. Keep it real!
