On behalf of the Leadership, Management and Staff of Sustainable Mission Aid (SMAid) International, formerly Map International in Ghana, it is my pleasure to thank you for visiting our website and supporting the work we do in Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire and across Africa via our sisters NGOs partners in Liberia and Kenya.

SMAid International is a Health, Relief and Development Organization that partners with vulnerable communities to improve the lives of Individuals, Children, and Families by identifying and helping them to overcome obstacles and challenges that prevent them from living life in its fullness.

Although SMAid International is a Christian organization, we are committed to help and serve everyone without discrimination based on religion, gender, race, and other aspects of an individual’s background; as the cornerstone of our faith command us in Mark 12:3: “Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater that these”.

Establishment
