Many people have asked us “Will you have internet access in Ghana?” The answer (to my great relief) is “Yes!”
The Medical Centre uses a satellite phone to send and receive email. I’m not sure what the charges are at this point but I’ve been assured it is perfectly fine for checking email and can even allow the occasional online shopping spree (though I’d guess any shipping & handling fees to Nalerigu would be outrageous!).
In addition, whenever we are in the capitol city of Accra or when I go to Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire we will have high speed internet access. As a “plan B” though, I’ve setup a feature on this blog that lets us to post via email. In fact, this post was sent as an email and the blog automatically retrieves the message and makes the subject line the headline and the message the post body.
So don’t worry – we’ll be updating the site regularly and you can still contact us via email (no large attachments please).
