Fountain erected in honor of Brother Tarcisius svd
The Orthopedic Training Centre (OTC) was begun by the Divine Word Missionaries in 1961. Brother Tarcisius de Ruyter SVD is the founder and at present the co-director with Sister Elizabeth Newman SSND. The co-directors, assistant director and general manager form the management team of the Centre. The primary purpose of the Centre is the rehabilitation of the physically challenged in Ghana and people from other countries.
Since 1961 the OTC has been able to open its doors and services so many physically challenged in West Africa, especially Ghana. Thousands have passed through the centre or have received the help they need from our mobile unit. We feel very fortunate that we have been able to continue and have had the materials and trained staff members to make all of this happen. So many individuals, foundations and organizations have partnered with us so that the children could receive the care they need to develop into individuals who could take their proper place in society.
