December 2015 Activity Report

In December, Light for Children staff members visited several villages around the Lake Bosumtwe area to meet with community leaders.

Orbis International, in partnership with Light for Children and other local NGOs, will be offering eye care training and other support to health professionals in the region. Nurses at village health centers and clinics will learn to treat simple problems such as conjunctivitis, as well as guidance on when to refer more serious cases to the district hospitals. Doctors at district hospitals and Konfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi will also receive training and support.

Interviews were conducted with queen mothers, chiefs and elders to get their perspective on what problems the communities are facing with regards to eye care.

Mike hosted his annual Christmas party at his home for the children in the neighbourhood. No children’s party is complete in Ghana until the kids get a chance to show off their dance moves.
