Wenchi Methodist Hospital, Ghana

Contact: Mr Bernard Botwe (Administrator)
Focus: Healthcare

This important district hospital was established in 1951 by the local community and handed over to the Methodist Church in 1952. The then Methodist Superintendent Minister was Rev. John Dixon, an Irish missionary. It serves as the district referral centre for twenty public and private health centres with a population of 173,000 people, mostly engaged in farming. The facility cares for people most commonly suffering from malaria, malnutrition, pneumonia, hepatitis, tropical ulcers, typhoid fever, pregnancy complications, schistosomiasis, hypertension and anaemia. WDR has had a long relationship with the hospital (as has Irish Methodism in general). The current focus is the rehabilitation of the Reproductive and Child Health Unit. The most recent monitoring and evaluation visit was in April 2016. 


Give thanks to God for the continued steady growth and development of the Wenchi Methodist hospital.
Pray that the hospital can attract resources to procure a new vehicle to replace a six year old Double Cabin Pick-up, which is used for the numerous long distance travels to the national capital for meetings and other business transactions.
Pray for God’s intervention in the affairs of Ghana as we go into Elections in Nov/December, 2016 and after.
Thank God for the lives of all the partners through whose generous support the hospital has come this far.
