The Cardinal Dery Foundation builds fresh water wells, primarily in the rural areas of Northern Ghana, which is drier and more likely to suffer from famine. Waterways are far from villages and homes; women and children carry water long distances, and often the water available for use is contaminated, causing disease.
The Dery Foundation’s focus on Health Care is mainly in the areas of prevention, basic health education and minor treatment. Local clinics need medical supplies and equipment. Basic nutrional support in the form of healthy food is provided to eliminate consumption of contaminated or spoiled items.
Education for Youth
Cardinal Dery devoted much of his life to educating the poor children of Ghana. He believed the future of mankind depends on self-sufficient individuals capable of making good decisions based on knowledge.
