Latter Day Saints to train doctors in Trauma handling

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints will, in January next year, invite a medical team from Salt Lake in the United States of America, to train doctors at the Tema General Hospital in the handling of trauma and accident cases.

A Public Affairs Officer of the Tema Stake, Mr. William Kofi Kassah, who disclosed this here on Saturday explained that the training was meant to help the hospital manage trauma and accident cases effectively, as its nearness to the Tema- Accra motorway, the Tema- Aflao highway, the Tema port and the Tema industrial area made it the first point of call during emergencies.

Mr. Kassah, made the disclosure when 800 members of the Tema congregation of the church and some volunteers cleaned the Tema General Hospital.

The four-hour exercise saw the participants painting the Out Patient Department including the 16 consulting rooms, weeding and cleaning the surroundings of the hospital.

This was the ninth edition of the ‘Mormon helping hands project’ which provided the opportunity for participants to join other members of the church in 30 African countries to serve their communities.

The Mormon Helping Hands Project established in 1998 is held annually throughout Africa where members and volunteers join to provide community service.
