Messenger - Vol. 1, No. 1, Page 29 Fall 1991 Mission: Possible Gary Mink, Delaware '74, is establishing a medical laboratory and 80-bed hospital in Ankasi, Ghana, in West Africa, starting with a concrete-block building that lacks electricity and an adequate water supply. Mink, who left in May, says the top priority for the first six months is to learn the native language, Twi. "We need to learn the local language before we can really help the people," said Mink, whose wife and two daughters are with him. Sponsored by the Mission for United Methodists, the Minks will live in Ghana for three years, return home for a year and probably return to Ghana for another three-year stay. Mink's long-term goal is to transform the present day-clinic into a hospital run by local practitioners. The medical technology major was most recently vice president of human resources at Medlab Clinical Testing Inc. of Delaware.
