Orbis Flying Eye Hospital

I have a Google regular search for Ghana and I read about the Flying Eye Hospital coming to Ghana and they were going to be at the main airport. I wrote to inquire if we could visit. They also heard we were there and wanted to visit, so we hosted them on board the Anastasis on Tuesday. Then, we went on Friday to the airport and had a tour of their plane. They are focusing on going to developing nations and training the eye professionals in the area – they do some surgeries, but mainly it is training. Whereas, Mercy Ships we are doing 15-20 eye surgeries a day – seeing those who were blind can see again – plus we do training if there are eye professional in the area – in some countries, they just do not exist.
