The third town to be visit was Omanadwareye, it was developed than the other two and more closer to the city than the others so far. Most of the health teams work were conducted in a church building nearby whiles the other activities such as the gift distribution, education sessions, picture session etc were done outside.

As usual the team were segregated (separation of powers) to help facilitate the whole process and makes thing faster and easier, the patients were also segregated according to the needs and wants and the service rendering processed, for instance the adults were separated from the children and were look after by different teams.

Teaching adults requires techniques and methods that are very much different from children, adults can be taught well using abstract learning however with children you would need something more relating and concrete examples for them to be able to appreciate what you want to put across. Town folks reception was very welcoming too and we had the time to talk about what Christmas is all about. It was beautiful moments.

What is @bettervision about?

@bettervision is is a project initiated by @nattybongo and friends to give back to the society the knowledge and skill acquired through the Optometric Studies in Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana.It is an outreach system where we visit the less privileged communities to offer free eye screening services and education to the people within the community

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
To reduce or prevent vision loss through diseases such as glaucoma, cataract and refractive errors.

To enlighten the majority of the Ghanaian population about the importance of proper visual care.

To conscientize people on the need for regular eye checks

To get more people to have their wards screened within the Critical periods of a Child’s Vision Development; thus from ages 3 to till about 10 years.

To help the blind and people with low vision live a better life within the society through education of the general public to stop stigmatization.

Our greatest gratitude goes to @fundition @adollaraday @surfyogi @girlsfoundation @bleepcoin @ackza @indigoocean @kasho and @wafrica for helping to make the aims and objectives of @bettervision a reality.

Is it an accident that a place with 'eye' in its name was chosen for eye-screening purposes? :P

Good outreach, but I got a criticism: that bag of creamies doesn't look very health-promoting 🤔

sure, thanks @alexander.alexis, we would be sure to do better.

It is indeed a mere coincidence
