The Ghana Bandage
The purpose of the
Ghana Bandage Project is to send sheets torn into
bandages to the Baptist Medical Centre in Ghana, West Africa.
Bandages are used as dressings in surgery and
on the wards.
The bandages must be rolled!
Instructions for rolling bandages:
Collect soft cotton
sheets of any color or design, freshly laundered.
Snip and remove any hems and
Fold sheet in half
lengthwise (so you have the longest strips); snip the folded
sheet every 3 inches; tear the sheet into strips.
Remove any loose threads.
Roll bandage by first rolling
around a pencil or dowel. Do not tape end of bandage
to the pencil. Roll the strips as tightly as possible. At the end of
the strip, add another strip—do not tape together—continue
rolling. Pencil/dowel may be removed at this time.
Each roll will contain 6-8
strips, and should measure 3-3 ˝ inches in diameter.
Place a 3 inch piece of masking
tape at the end of the roll. Do not use pins, strings
or rubber bands to hold rolls.
Package by layering in a box.
Label the box GHANA BANDAGE PROJECT.
