We love hearing stories of volunteers making a meaningful impact on the ground, and we're happy to present the reflections of volunteer Laurie Sutherland of her experience with CCS in Ghana.
My two weeks volunteering in Ho, Ghana, was spent doing vision screenings at schools in 2 villages, 30 minutes from our home base. During that time we (5 of us the first week, 4 the second) screened:
- 331 people, including a half dozen or so teachers
- 21 failed the test, 2 of them teachers.
