Blindness is life-threatening in the Ashanti villages. Farmers with cataracts find they can’t distinguish corn from weeds; women can no longer collect water or cook; children have a life expectancy of about a year.
Ashanti Development has just carried out fifteen more cataract operations with funding from Hands International and the MCEC. The patients are overwhelmed by their good fortune. Ashanti Development joins them in sending enormous thanks to the donors.
