Healthcare partnerships (4)

5 June, 2018

Thank you Eric and good to hear about what you doing in rural Ghana. A lot of the partners out there do not have any ulterior motives however a few of them do.

I have a friend who continue to write a particular agency to take off their name from the agency website because they only using their name to raise funds but nothing reaches them in Ghana.

In the area of partnerships, I think it should be fair play.
