As part of the healthcare initiative area of the Virtue Foundation, volunteers and Foundation representatives undertake a wide range of programming and activities throughout the year. This includes medical missions, research, site visits, and donation of medical equipment.
The Virtue Foundation carries out projects in several different countries, such as Cambodia, El Salvador, Ghana, and Mongolia. The specific areas of work vary depending on data-based needs assessments to ensure resources are being allocated where they are most needed. For example, we found an unmet need for women’s healthcare in northern Ghana, and organized a mission team to help address this gap. To date, we have carried out medical missions in areas of eye health, women’s health, acid violence, dental hygiene, pediatric health, and preventative medicine, among others.
The Institute for Innovation and Philanthropy in Ghana serves as a model institution to facilitate development solutions for women and children’s advancement.Learn More
