Eye Screening at Gyetiase Clinic

Our newest part-time employee at Gyetiase is Agnes, an optometrist who screens eyes and distributes spectacles. Her eye clinic is very popular and attracts patients from far and wide, despite the fact that they all have to pay Ghc.5 for the privilege.

Introducing Brofoyedru

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

This is to introduce the village of Brofoyedru, which has just been sponsored for sanitation. Nicholas says the community is very excited as for some time now they’ve been watching nearby villages getting sponsors and wishing they could have one too.

They don’t look very excited in the photo, but I’m sure they are. And there in the background, you can see our new vehicle (the old one’s been sold on). FYI, she’s a girl, and she’s called Daphne.

The New Ashanti Communal Latrine

Sekyere Central District recently asked if we would build some latrines for patients at Kwamang Hospital in the south of the District. In similar circumstances in the past we’ve built big, concrete latrines, all very expensive. David decided to see if normal household latrines, built close together, might not do the job at a fraction of the cost. The photo shows the very start of the work.

Sponsored Walk

Sponsored walk 2014 sponsored walk 4

Here are before and after photos of the Ashanti annual sponsored walk, which was held at the end of last month. Twenty of us walked from St Pancras Old Church in central London, down the Grand Union Canal as far as Limehouse.  Then we adjourned to a pub, and finally caught the river bus home.

So far, the walk has raised nearly £1,500 and there’s probably more money to come.
