Meet… Volunteer Emmanuel!
Emmanuel is 38 years old. Our Ghana team leader first met him a long time ago, but we really got to know him when he attended our Natural Medicine seminar in Nakpayili seven years ago.
Emmanuel was keen to help build peace in his mixed-tribe community which includes both Konkomba and the Nanumba/Dagomba people.
Following the seminar, he told us he’d like to start sanitation and hygiene work to help keep the community clean and healthy. With our support, he began to volunteer using the skills he acquired at the seminar.
This work has gone from strength to strength ever since. Today Emmanuel leads 18 volunteers from the CHIPS Ghana team and the Red Cross Society.
Every Friday, they work together to clean the community and provide first aid to those who need it!
