Seth Ephraim Tetteh-Quaye is Medical Ministry International’s Ghana Project Director. He is an Accountant and first participated as a volunteer with Medical Ministry International’s eye project in 2006 in his country under the former country director, Collins Antwi. He served as a member of the staff of our principle partner in Ghana, “Sight for Africa”. According to Collins who is passionate about integrated health education, “sometimes the solution is to talk to the man (or parents) of the house or share information to reduce child labour, school drop outs, infant malaria mortality, diseases, abuse of women, and so on.”
