Empowering the disabled and underserved people of Sierra Leone to reach their full potential through health care, education, and disability advocacy.

Founded in May 2007, GREATEST GOAL MINISTRIES (GGM) is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to serving the most vulnerable population of Sierra Leone, West Africa; the amputees, disabled, and children affected first by its decade-long (1991-2002) civil war and more recently by the West African Ebola epidemic.  GGM’s mission is to empower the disabled and underserved people of Sierra Leone to reach their full potential through health care, education and disability advocacy.

Working in the health care sector since 2009, GGM’s first clinic was in a facility in Murray Town.  The facility was made available to GGM by the Ministry of Health and Sanitation.  Looking to expand their healthcare services, a joint collaborative effort between GGM, Mr. Solomon Berewa (former vice-president of Sierra Leone), Her Excellency Sia Koroma (current First Lady of Sierra Leone) and the Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MoHS) allowed GGM the opportunity to renovate a building built by Mr. Berewa in honor of his late wife six years prior.  GGM opened the Lady Deborah Berewa (outpatient) Hospital in Lakka just outside the capital city of Freetown in December 2012. This hospital provides free healthcare to those most in need.

 

 

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, commited citizens can change the world; it's the only thing that ever has.
