Dr. Samuel Okae
Founder of the project
Dr Samuel Okae is a full-time specialist for trauma surgery and orthopaedics, Dortmund in Germany.
To date, the father of five children has invested around 400,000 EUR in his project. The hospital is about 3450 square meters in size and will offer space for about 130 beds.
Dr Okae was last on site at the end of 2019. Because the current corona pandemic it is currently impossible for the doctor to make a trip to Ghana. During his visit in 2019, Dr. Okae was able, together with supporters from Germany, to press ahead with the interior work in particular. Fortunately, Dr. Okae is connected to the construction site digitally on a daily basis via his project manager Mr. Päffgen-Schmidt. Thus, despite the restrictions imposed by the pandemic, he is well informed about the considerable progress being made on the construction site.
