2008 Comprehensive Eye Exams – Cape Coast, Ghana
Return to Ghana
After a very successful deployment in May 2007, Carolina returned to Ghana in November 2008 for three weeks. During her 2007 Ghana visit, Carolina didn’t have enough time to examine all the children at the Rev. Alec Jones School in Nkanfoa, so she returned to be able to finish the screening of those remaining classes that missed out.
Unfortunately, Carolina’s Ghana visit coincided with the examinations period of the optometry students, so they weren’t able to perform screenings every day. Nevertheless Carolina and her team managed to screen 52 children in that three-week period and Carolina was able to train 9 optometry students.
