He has made a commitment to support Motec whenever possible including paying working visits to the target hospitals in Ghana.

Paul Ofori-Atta  Paul Ofori-Atta MB., ChB., FRCS. Orthopaedic Surgeon. West Herts NHS Trust Hospitals.

          President- Motec Life –UK, World Orthopaedic Concern-UK representative for West Africa

“No life is worthwhile unless it has been useful and made a positive difference to the people we see or never get to know”.

Born in Ghana, I trained at the Ghana Medical School 1976 -1982 and worked at the Catholic Mission Hospital at Nkawkaw and the Teaching Hospital, Korle-Bu in Accra, Ghana. I was a part time Field Tutor of the Ghana Medical School Department of Community Medicine between 1984 and 1987. I am the author of a paper ‘Laboratory service and ancillary aids in disease diagnosis in rural medical practice’, ‘Long Distance Orthopaedic Trauma Relief - an odyssey’ and co-author of ‘The Evolving sub-Saharan Experience’ in Knee Joint arthroplasty.

My areas of professional interests are joint arthroplasties and knee arthroscopic / knee reconstruction surgery. I have special interest in sickle joint disease and limb fracture management. Besides, I enjoy the challenges orthopaedic trauma presents in sub-Saharan Africa and the immense benefits of my service to ‘deprived people’.

I am a member of the founding family and currently the executive President of the multi-national and multicultural organisation Motec Life-UK. My ambition is to upgrade Orthopaedic Trauma care in sub-Saharan Africa through education, training and exemplary charitable programme centred around multi-disciplinary clinical and public activities. I also serve on the executive committee of the World Orthopaedic Concern –UK.

I share the concerns about the ‘underperforming surgical/clinical services in rural Africa’ and intend to involve committed volunteers to expand Motec work to cover training, breast cancer care, support for malnourished children in the remotest parts of the West African sub-region. By these acts, I am hoping to make my life meaningful and purposeful.

Outside medicine, I enjoy ‘farming from the distance’, love meeting people, and I like helping people in any way that I can. I am married to a lovely wife Gladys and count myself ‘blessed’ with three children, Catherine, Sylvia and Aaron and an extended multi-racial family of ‘the people of God’. I live with my family in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, England.

Miss Yaa Ntiriwa Danso Miss Yaa Ntiriwaa Danso PON

I trained as a general nurse at the 37 military Hospital Nurses' Training College in Accra Ghana and subsequently trained as a Peri-Operative and Critical Care Nurse at Korle-Bu, Ghana. Prior to that I worked as a theatre Nurse in various surgical specialties at the 37 Military Hospital.

Post qualification as a Peri-operative nurse, I have worked as both as an intern and as a certified Peri-Operative Nurse (PON) at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, Cape Coast Regional Hospital, Korle-bu Teaching Hospital and the VRA hospital in Akosombo. I am currently employed by the Ministry of Defence and working as PON at the 37 Military Hospital. I aspire to become an Orthopaedic Scrub Nurse and I am hoping that my membership of Motec will propel this "dream" and to make it possible for me to share my experiences with other Nursing staff in Ghana.

My current job as a PON leave s me little time to pursue my love for athletics and games, I still have a flair for volley ball, soccer, lawn tennis, table tennis and discuss. I also enjoy country music, classical and Ghanaian traditional " Yaa Amponsah" highlife tunes.
