We are lucky to include BasAid among our donors. The organisation is based in Basle and funded by chemical and other major companies.
Not only have they funded many of our projects, but they are now collecting secondhand spectacles and shipping them to Ashanti for our eye clinic. Apparently on days when the clinic is operational queues start to form at 3am. At 8am the queue is closed and people trying to join after that, many of whom have walked for miles to get there, have to go home till next time.
Here is BasAid’s Kwaku Marfo presenting the latest batch of secondhand spectacles to Ashanti Development’s Nicholas Aboagye.
