About the Event
This September 14-20, Caring Crew is excited to bring a group of volunteers to Accra, Ghana, to partner with the nonprofit Global Wellness Mission Apaapa Community Center to help the children of Labadi. Very similar to our own mission statement, Global Wellness Mission’s aim is to improve the health and wellbeing of global communities by bridging the inequality of wellness. > > Our small group of volunteers will spend several days putting on health, nutrition, sustainability, physical activity programs and education lessons for the school aged children. Additionally, we will bring medical supplies to help a local clinic. The goal is to share tools to educate and encourage a more balanced, thoughtful, and healthy existence for the people of this Labadi community.
