Mission Details : Medical Ministry International will facilitate a two-week vision project in Darkuman Kokompe, Accra, Ghana from March 14-28, 2020. Medical Ministry International’s work in Ghana stretches back several decades. Many projects have been under the leadership of Dr. Bob and Peggy Schoffstall and his wife Peggy, and more recently have gone to support the efforts of Dr. Kofi & Vivian Ghartey and “Sight for Africa." In Ghana, the major causes of avoidable blindness are: Cataract, Glaucoma, Trachoma, Childhood blindness, Refractive Errors and Others. It is estimated that 80% of the causes are preventable and unfortunately Cataract accounts for almost 45-50% of the causes from Ghana health news. The objective of the vision program is to perform cataract surgery, provide optometry care, conduct screenings, and to educate patients on being independent without their sight. The program will take place within the Darkuman community, as many people from this area have limited access to health care services. The focus of the team is to treat the majority especially the aged who are mostly blinded by cataract. This project needs a comprehensive vision care team including Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, Opticians, Nurses, Technicians, and Non-Medical Support Team Members. Vision care projects are focused in urban areas, and include opportunities for local medical personnel to receive training. These large projects typically see a high volume of patients. Teams work Monday-Friday with the middle weekend off for relaxation. Participants are expected to fundraise on behalf of Medical Ministry International to help raise the funds necessary to cover the budgeted costs of the Project Teams. These fundraising goal minimums include accommodations, meals, travel insurance, and malpractice insurance. Air fare is not included in the fundraising goals. This is an excellent opportunity to serve the people of Ghana! Please provide your specialty or if resident your year of study when inquiring.
