Appeal for funds

Despite having some support from the USA, the organisation said it needed sponsorship to execute the project because the cost of local drugs were high.

The outreach gave each of the treated patients drugs for the next three months which she said was a major drain on their budget.

Aside the medical outreach, Lohim, also embarks on periodic prison ministrations, including preaching, provision of basic items and medication as well as hospital visitation.

Founded in 2000, Lohim became more vibrant and operational on the last five years attending to both the physical and spiritual needs of the people in Ghana.
