The Eye Center at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, Ghana has been gearing up for the opening and equipping of a new three level clinic that will enable the ophthalmic staff to provide more sight-restoring surgeries at the hospital and in remote locations where patients do not have access to quality eye care. While the finishing touches are underway the outreach team is working with community planners in over 18 districts to educate and screen patients who are unaware of the services they can receive through donor support. Three outreaches are planned in the coming months. Stay tuned for more updates.
