2016 comission for Methodist World Development & Relief to document some of the work they support in Ghana. The two main projects MWDR are involved in are Wenchi Methodist Hospital and a series of agricultural projects in Ekumfi.
Founded in 1951, Wenchi methodist hospital has went from strength to strength, now serving a community of 173,000 people with incredible accuracy and professionalism under the watch of the amazing Mr Bernard Botwe, Administrator.
Local people in the Ekumfi region had traditionally relied upon the forests for food and building materials. Deforestation and a coconut tree virus saw the resources become very depleted. Two fast-growing tree species were planted, under the watch of Rev Joseph Donkoh, who had his agricultural diploma funded my MWDR a number of years ago. New, safer and more efficient kilns have been developed and additional crop species such as pineapples and peppers are now being planted.
A commission by the Methodist World Development & Relief services. MWDR find inspired and hard working people in developing countries around the world and support them to continue and expand their community works.

Isolation is being alone. Loneliness is not liking it.
Walter lives alone in a fold, outside the town of Lisburn, Northern Ireland. His wife passed away several years ago. He has several medical complaints that keep him wheelchair bound.
Having a free public transport pass because i'm old is great, says Walter. I get on my scooter and up the ramp, onto the train and off I go to Belfast to get together the materials I need for my current project.
Walter likes to play guitar, sing, record his music, make all sorts of craft projects, organise his old photo albums, make new photographs, mess around on his laptop and chat to his friends and family on the phone.
