GREAT FAITH VISION
Transforming Lives Through the Gift of Sight
GFV is going to Ghana
At the invitation of Afrihope Missions Clinic a team of 12 individuals, including 3 optometrists, will be traveling to Berekum, Ghana, West Africa, March 22-31, 2024.
The team will be collaborating with the local hospital leadership in training Ghanan staff and establishing an eye screening clinic at the hospital which serves remote communities in the Nsoatre and Berekum areas of Ghana.
In partnership with newly trained hospital staff, the team will be conducting comprehensive eye examinations for the underserved rural communities in the hospital’s service areas and providing education on eye health and preventative measures to combat common eye conditions.
Besides providing essential services such as vision screenings, eye examinations, prescription eyeglasses and eye drops, we aim to raise awareness of the need for spiritual sight which unlike physical sight, has eternal implications.
The team’s presence will give this newly credentialed hospital visibility in their service areas and provide a forum for the hospital to connect with local churches and the local churches to connect with their communities.
The target support goal for each team member is $3,500 which covers the cost of travel, accommodations, medical supplies, and other necessary expenses.
Your prayers for the safety, health and effectiveness of the team are invaluable.
You can partner with the team financially by clicking this link and making an online donation or you can send a check payable to Great Faith Vision and mail with a note designating your gift to:
