The Lions International Eye Centre which is located at Korle Bu in Ghana is one of the largest teaching hospitals in West Africa. The eye centre helps people suffering with potentially blinding eye conditions.

We rely on your support so that we can continue to improve sight services in the region. To deliver this project we are working in partnership with the Lions Clubs International Foundation and Moorfields Eye Charity.

We urgently need to raise £30,000 to help us complete the build and equip the Lions International Eye Centre. While the centre is up and running there is still some work to be done to ensure it is fully operational and functioning to high standards.

Already, up to 200 patients are being seen each day at the centre.

It is set to become a Centre of Excellence in the provision of eye care services and ophthalmological surgical training. As soon as operating theatres are operational, we will start a training programme with the potential to train 32 ophthalmologists every year.

Donations will help fund medical equipment, to sponsor trainee ophthalmologists or contribute towards funds to support poorer patients access medicines and spectacles. Your support will enable us to bring real relief to people across the whole of the West Africa region. Any surplus funds raised through this campaign will roll into the next project to benefit the LionsInternational Eye Centre.
