Two of the three floors at the new eye center at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi, Ghana, are bustling with activity. Completing the final floor, which houses the operating theatres, is the last major construction effort required before setting a date for the formal inauguration prior to year end. The KATH outreach team recently organized a mini outreach event — sponsored by a local bank — that brought 22 patients to the eye clinic for cataract surgery.
