Glad to have helped Yonkofa open their third clinic in Kordjour Ghana! This charity brings medical care to the most rural areas...often only accessible from rough dirt roads. Most people would be dissuaded by the logistic challenges, but Yonkofa knows those challenges are exactly why these villages need a Yonkofa clinic!

Yonkofa is building medical clinics in rural Ghana, and thereby bringing much needed healthcare to some of the world’s most neglected. The leaders of this organization give their precious time and had earned money to make this organization successful , and take nothing back but satisfaction.

The Yonkofa clinics are making a huge difference to the rural communities they serve. The third one is on the worst, mountainous, rutted, dirt-road ever. Nobody would have built a clinic there, except Yonkofa. This is truly providing health care where it would otherwise not be available.

International assistance projects only thrive if they nurture local ownership. This is where Yonkofa excels and is one reason they've been so successful.

The Yonkofa Project builds medical clinics in Western Ghana, bringing local knowledge and citizen engagement into every aspect of the work. This ensures that communities become personally invested in the success of programs, plans, and policies. The District Chief in the Aowin region of Ghana described the relationship this way: "Our offices helped supervise supervise the instillation of electric lines brought up the hill and lighting the way to the Yonkofa Clinic. And we helped build the pipeline necessary to bring Yonkofa’s well water down the hill to the village below. We have collaborated on the disabled occupational training center, which will be built next to the clinic. We look forward to future projects, education, sanitation, and health-care services, knowing that the friendship is deep and sincere, the commitment is long-term, and the result will be sustained healthcare delivery for the people of the Western district."

I support Yonkofa because their approach is compassionate, respectful, successful. and sustainable.

Something we take for granted is health care. Seeing what it takes behind the scenes to keep this organization moving forward is the true gift. Outstanding organization!

The Yonkofa Project is an amazingly well-run charity. All donations are used to develop medical clinics in rural Ghana. Little to no medical care exists in these areas of the country so mothers and children receive insufficient treatment for basic injuries and illnesses. The over-arching goal of the non-profit is to open a new clinic every year in a different area. The Yonkofa Project is financially well run by volunteers who devote their time, and money, to creating a means for delivering basic medical care to these rural Ghanaians.

I have had the pleasure of working with The Yonkofa Project for the last few years and find it hard to put into words just how amazing this group is! Bringing healthcare to some of the hardest to reach areas of the Western Region of Ghana is their goal. They accomplish this in so many ways. It is truly a charity that focuses on helping the community help themselves, not just putting on a band-aid and leaving. Every dollar goes towards supplies, buildings, infrastructure, and education.

I found out about yonkofa by chance helping a neighbor move closer to family. What I have learned is it is a charity that not only first and foremost bring healthcare to people in Ghana they also help in many other ways such help making sure the books that are donated make it to where they need to go so that they can finally have a library in enchi ! The people I have met continue to amaze me with the endless ways they are helping many people who . need healthcare and to be able to read books when they like. If you want amazing charity to donate to where they make everything they are given count and they do exactly what they tell you check it out look on Facebook or Goole it i think you will find it is the best one I have seen! The clinic for the people of Ghana is most important but Yonkofa does so much more to go with that.

I went on an early trip with Yonkofa Project. It was clear that members of the project were making deep and meaningful relationships, and looking for ways to properly serve the communities we were visiting, not just to get Facebook profile pics. It was immediately clear that we were helping to fill a void, and that we were doing it alongside local Ghanaians gave us a great perspective of the people, the country, and some of their thoughts on our presence. I would recommend Yonkofa Project to anyone looking to volunteer time or money to medical projects in West Africa.

The Yonkofa Project uses all donations plus their own money to establish medical clinics in rural Ghana that provide care previously unavailable in those areas. This is a great organization to support if you want to save lives that are threatened by simple infections and preventable diseases. The impact of these clinics on the villages and the surrounding areas cannot be overstated. Fresh, clean water for the clinic results in clean water for the town, and greatly reduced water- borne diseases. THIS is a charity we can all support.

Over the years since I’ve met the sweet and hard working person behind this project I have seen a lot of accomplishments in this organization and their hard work to succeed in what they are getting done and that’s why I do not hesitate in donating every year . Yonofa believes deeply what it stands for and you want be disappointed in helping them out or even go help as a volunteer to see with your own eyes the huge difference they have made for the people in Ghana with their health issues that they struggle with each day. There’s a lot of hard working people that has already made a difference and they continue to do today .

This organization has helped the people of Ghana with their medical needs and shown them love and care for over 5 years now. They're a wonderful group of people who are helping those who have so little. It's been great to see the progress of the clinics that they've built, and how it's helped in so many ways!

This is such a responsible and practical organization through which to give charitably. Every penny is stretched using the the services of generous community and international volunteers, making each dollar go a long way toward building clinics that will make a difference in the lives of those they serve. Simple, smart fixes for real-world problems.

In a time of rising health care costs and red tape, it is encouraging to see an M.D. use her training to build a center that serves people who lack access to even the most basic services! It is awesome to see the first center built and a second one now in process!
