Funding for Eye Screening Exercise in Nima, Ghana

Requested by

The Issaka Foundation

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

The Free Eye Screening Exercise is one of the major programs of the Issaka Foundation for 2014. The purpose of this exercise is to offer school-going children the opportunity to know the condition of their eyesight, and for those with serious conditions to seek early medical treatment. All these are done with the support of the Issaka Foundation.

The exercise is supposed to be a free service provided for the children in the public schools. These children are unable to afford the medical check-ups and treatment due to the high cost involved in seeking private medical check-up as well as their parents’ inability to afford.

What is your project and how will it help?

The objectives of the Free Eye Screening Exercise are:

a. To afford the pupils of the Nima Cluster of Schools the opportunity to know the conditions of their eye sight.

To assist under-privileged pupils with serious eye problems to seek for medical assistance as soon as possible.

c. To provide eye drugs to pupils with eye problems in their early stages.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

The Free Eye Screening Exercise will take place within 3 days at the premises of the Nima Cluster of Schools in Nima. Eye Specialists will be brought from the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital (Eye Clinic) for this purpose. These specialists will examine the pupils and prescribe medicine for those found to have eye problems.

Please detail the resources that you need.

The total budget required for this project is Ghana Cedis (GHC 8,900.00), and it is equivalent to US$4,600
