MARSHFIELD (WAOW) -- A local professor helps people a world away.

UW Marshfield/Wood County professor and Ghana native Iddi Adam visited the country last year.

It was the first time he saw a hospital since he left in 1990.

Surprised by the conditions, Adam collected medical supply donations to send to the northern Ghana hospital.

"You feel that any little thing that you can do to make the conditions better is worth it," Adam said. "And I know these supplies are going to make a big difference in people's lives."

Adam hopes to ship the supplies by the end of the month. The cost to ship the supplies is about $7,000.

If you'd like to help you can reach Adam at - 715-389-6527
