Other notable services provided through Dorcas medical mission in Ghana include, establishing a partnership with local
medical and nursing students; a well providing running water in Ga-Odumase; improved several church building and
facilities and running water to a local community in Chorkor. In Ghana and South Africa, Dorcas Medical Mission has
established relationship with many Church Ministers and has conducted many Leadership Seminars and Training
These missions have seen the delivery of over $12M in actual expenditure on goods and services. In terms of reasonable
cost of professional services and market value for medication and supplies as well as food and clothing, the economic
benefit to the needy is well in excess of $30M.
Dorcas plans to set up 3 permanent missions in the near future.
• Ghana – A clinic with a permanent staff of 2 doctors and 2 nurses is to be established in Chorkor. This will run all year
with additional staffing provided on a rotating basis from volunteers who wish to give their vacation time to this effort. The
volunteer pool will include Dorcas and other volunteers and housing will be provided at the complex. The complex will also
house volunteers on Dorcas revolving missions and will be made available to other volunteer organizations working in the
area from time to time.
• Guyana – A clinic similar to the one in Ghana is planned for Guyana at a site to be chosen. Administration and staffing
will be along the same lines as the Chorkhor clinic.
• South Africa – Dorcas is proposing to establish an orphanage Dorcas Sunshine Home for children orphaned by
HIV/AIDS in Alexandra, Johannesburg. This will house 20 children and will be sited on a property already acquired. The
property will require some modifications and the project will require a staff of at least 10. Another 3-acre plot of land has
been purchased to erect a multi-purpose facility.
