Andrew went to the village of ONWE in KUMASI GHANA for 7 weeks in his gap year last summer, to volunteer in a small 33 bed hospital, giving basic First Aid and paliative care to lots of children suffering from Malaria and life threatening illnesses with minimal medication. He also helped at the village primary school whilst staying with the headmaster. He has organised several events at his own school here and is taking part in the Ironman Challenge in Zurich in early July to raise funds for an extension to the school in ONWE. All 600 pupils and staff at his school Devonport High School for Boys, are sponsoring Andrew for 1 penny for each mile he completes. His training is highly motivated by his dedication to improve the well being of these deprived children. He is returning to ONWE for 4 weeks in August to present his donation and organise a summer school for the humble children of this village. Their leader wishes to honour him with 'chief' status as he has contributed hope and inspiration to the children and people of this remote village in the short time he lived there. Andrew designed and had printed 1000 xmas cards from ENGLAND to GHANA in colour, and got 1000 children here to write personal messages to the children of ONWE. I have now completed the Ironman challenge in 13 hours 43 minutes raising a total of £1100 for the Ropak Educational Complex in Onwe. The school of only 6 rundown classrooms housing 700 children is now preparing to expand with my donation.
