Sight for Africa was set up in 2003 with the sole aim of providing eye care services to the poor and vulnerable, and the need to avoid preventable blindness.
In 2004, Medical Ministry International began to support the efforts of Dr. Kofi & Vivian Ghartey and “Sight for Africa”.
Kofi Ghartey, an optician living in Canada for 30 years, returned to his native Ghana with a vision to serve his people. A full eye clinic was developed in Darkuman-Kokompe in Accra, Ghana’s capital, and it is now an MMI, Partner Health Center. Medical Ministry International ships needed equipment and supplies to support “Sight for Africa”.
It is also being supported by USA for Africa.
