Kelly Hadfield Sandema Ghana

The weather in northern Ghana is better than I could never have imagined it! It’s the harmattam, which in Ghana translates to their unbearably cold winter, but to Canadians, it means the most perfect summer days! Each day is sunny and warm, and kindly accompanied by a cool and relaxing breeze.

After a long period of work yesterday, I stopped to climb the OG tree (wearing conveniently my Operation Groundswell shirt) and relax while munching on some fried plantain. A dry paradise all around. Later, I said goodbye to my good friend Daniel at the Horizon’s Children’s Centre, who has finished holidays and off to continue studying sciences at Nandom Secondary School, a village in the Upper West where Ghana Medical Help has a partner hospital.
