About Dag Heward-Mills
Dag Heward-Mills has established numerous active ministries that work within the church and community to serve the people of God. He founded the Helpless Charity which reaches out to the prisons, to the handicapped, the blind, the deaf and dumb, widows of pastors, the poor and the sick, on a constant basis.
With this very personable side of his ministry, Dag Heward-Mills works extensively with the Helpless Charity.
For the blind, his plan is to supply as many braille machines as possible. This very essential tool for the blind is neither readily available in Ghana nor affordable. This project has already seen one implementation and there are several others lined up. He has also setup a project to translate the Ghanaian education textbooks into the braille language so the blind can also be educated adequately. The deplorable conditions under which the deaf and the dumb live are being improved.
For those in prison, Bishop Dag visits them and preaches the Gospel to them. This has led to correcting some of the horrific circumstances under which they live. In one prison, a way has been made to have a regular supply of water, brand new toilets and septic tanks have also been made available to that facility.

He has also built and established an orphanage. There is currently an expansion project going on at the orphanage to build bigger structures for the growing number of orphans as well as making the facilities as close to a home as possible. Rev. Mrs. Adelaide Heward-Mills runs and manages the orphanage.
He has a very soft spot that goes out to the widows of pastors. They are ministered to and supported regularly. He reaches out to the poor as well and cares for them.
Under the banner of the Helpless Charity, the Lighthouse Medical Mission hospital has been built and established. An aspect of the Medical Missions conducts massive rural medical clinics where as many as 4000 people get attended to in a single day. These sick and poor people get free medical consultations and drugs for their ailments. For those that need surgical attention, they are referred to the hospital for the surgery and specialized attention.
