As of April 2015 there is a skilled workforce of over 700 labourers, managers, carpenters, masons, engineers on 5 active hospital sites across Ghana.  The workforce is in the majority made up of Ghanaians, as we keep our commitment to bolstering local economies and using local staff wherever possible.  Over 90% of those working on the project are Ghanaian nationals.  The size of the crew demonstrates the growing speed of the project, as over the last 3 months from January, it has increased by over 200%.

Fomena’s sod-cutting ceremony took place in early August, marking the beginning of the hospital build.  The ceremony was well attended by the District Assembly, chiefs, community members and medical students.  The occasion gave the team a great opportunity to engage with the local community and was greeted with enthusiasm from all sides.
