Matthew Brady, a member of New Medicine, contacted Joy2theWorld last summer inquiring about our work in Ghana. Matthew spent a month in Ghana (University of Ghana) while in college and he missed the wonderful people there. Could he join us on our next trip? But how would Matthew “make a difference”?
As it turned out, Matthew (aka Matt-chew) became fast friends with everyone he met. He picked up the local language quickly and enjoyed greeting everyone in Twi or Ga. He also helped taking pictures and videos (see below) and jumped in to help wherever he was needed. Turned out, Matthew was our diplomat! He returned to the University of Ghana where he assisted in writing a grant proposal for a project planned in the Northern Region.
Matthew may return this summer to work with our intern program. Check out Matthew and New Medicine http://www.myspace.com/newmedicine.
