As a secluded area quite far from Kumasi township it would be an opportunity for us to serve in accordance with our aims and objectives to impact and also focus on deprived areas, communities and individuals as a whole. We would thus use this opportunity to invite all and sundry who could make it to passby to have they eyecare done for free.

As always we believe we couldn't have gotten to this point without you our lovely supporters, sponsors and donors and for that we will always be grateful. We would like to express special appreciation to @chriddi, @fundition, @pennsif, @adollaraday, @the-gorilla @the100 @adeljose @sultan-aceh @xpilar. God Bless you all for your time.

Thank you and have a wonderful time
