Hands That Heal

We have had a busy year so far, and so much is being accomplished through LWDF. In June and July, we had two teams of medical and non-medical professionals travel half-way across the world to Togo, West Africa to perform surgical and medical missions. The surgical team was able to provide vaccinations and perform one c-section and six knee replacement surgeries. The medical team cared for people suffering from chronic pain, malaria, pyloric stenosis, wounds, and more. In total, both teams cared for 647 patients during their time in Togo.

Headquarter Agreement

Dr. Folly with LWDF was part of an event that made the Togolese national news, as multiple news outlets were there to record the event. On Wednesday, September 12, 2018, in the Togolese capital of Lomé, Dr. Komi Folly, president of LWDF, met with Mrs. Abra Afetsé-Tay, Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Cooperation and African Integration. Together, they signed a Headquarter Agreement aimed to formalize the installation of LWDF in Togo. This agreement gives LWDF freedom to have medical professionals and non-medical volunteers from outside of Togo travel to Togo and serve the people without experiencing administrative difficulties that sometimes happen when applying for a visa to enter the country. Because of this streamlined process, we will now be able to serve the Togolese people more efficiently and effectively.
