Transforming Lives in Rural Ghana: Portable Ultrasound for Mothers and Children

For a positive pregnancy outcome, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that every pregnant woman has at least two sonographies. These should occur before 12 weeks to confirm pregnancy and after 28 weeks to identify any medical condition that needs sonography during pregnancy.

Promoting Education and Healthcare in Africa

The Give Right Foundation empowers families throughout the developing world. We accomplish this by providing rural communities access to prenatal point-of-care ultrasound with the dual aim of improving prenatal care and decreasing maternal mortality. Collaborating with Butterfly, an ultrasound device company based out of California, it donates portable ultrasounds to rural clinics, educates midwives in their use, and coordinates the logistics surrounding ultrasound scans with local healthcare providers.

Nurturing Community Strength with Empathy and Solidarity

Our goal is to empower communities through collaborative partnerships that will outlive us. Through international volunteering and service-learning programs, we work with local community members to build long-lasting resources, address public health issues, and create equitable, long-term solutions.
