By Angelia Rorison | Communications Manager

Seven Recent Outreaches in Ghana and Ethiopia Result in over 1,300 Sight Restoring Surgeries

In July, Ghanaian partners at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital and Operation Eyesight Universal and Ethiopian partners at Quiha Zonal Hospital, Gondar University Hospital, Woldiya Hospital and St. Paul’s Hospital collectively provided over 1,300 sight restoring surgeries through seven outreach cataract events.

The following is an account of one of two outreach events organized by the Gondar University Department of Ophthalmology. In collaboration with Dangila Primary Hospital, a team from Gondar University Hospital provided eye care services for the community of Dangila, a town in northwestern Ethiopia, located in the Agew Awi Zone in Ethiopia Amhara Region. During this three day outreach a total of 2,127 patients were screened, of which 1,031 patients were treated with medicine for various eye ailments and 94 patients received sight-restoring cataract surgeries.
