An amazing improvement

Lydia is out of hospital. Not only is she out of hospital, she is smiling and looking forward to returning to Ghana to complete her pilots licence and carry out essential health education training to the rural communities.

Lydia's life has changed dramatically over the past three and a half years, and these x-rays showing the change in her hand position, really bring home how much this amazing young woman has gone through.

Our sincere thanks go out to the hospital at Bad Neustadt in Germany and to Professors Lanz and van Shoonhoven for their amazing skill in carrying out this surgery.

The MoM Germany team has led this event, and without them it could not have come together. Their fundraising, logistics and support enabled a smooth facilitation of this event. A large 'Vielen Danke' to our German team and all from around the world who have contributed towards 'Changing Lydia's life'.

  1. This is a great article and everyone should know about health symptoms and the proper medicines. I just learned that antibiotics are good for urinary track infections. This can be a very painful and defiantly needs serious care. I know you can perform a self catheterization but that should be done very carefully. I would also recommend talking to a professional before doing so.
