Live Updates: Ghana
Through this section you can follow our vaccination campaign in Bosomtwe, Ghana where our teams are working RIGHT NOW to eliminate rabies. For the next two weeks, we'll be joined by awesome international volunteers who are giving up their time and veterinary skills to help us rid the world of this zoonotic disease.
Join us day by day through live maps, blogs and video updates tracking our teams as they roam the streets of Bosomtwe district, delivering life-saving rabies vaccines to every dog in their path. The campaign launched on the 7th February and will continue until the 22nd February. This is the first time we have delivered a project in Ghana and we are excited to see how our methods can be employed in another of the world's rabies hotspots!
The map below shows the areas that the teams are vaccinating, with each coloured section representing a team's vaccination area. The GPS of every vaccine administered and the previous day's vaccinations are also highlighted. Blogs underneath tell the story of the campaign and our other successful vaccination and education programmes around the world through the eyes of our staff, volunteers and those directly affected by rabies.
Interact with us through the hashtag #MRGhana19 and support the ongoing work of Mission Rabies by giving what you can, be it fundraising, volunteering or a donation. We can prevent the death of thousands of children every year through mass dog vaccination in Ghana and other world rabies hotspots. If you would like to support our work directly, please donate here.
Mission Rabies have been working since 2013 to develop tools and methods to make this happen on a big scale. For more information about our projects visit the Our Projects section.
