Providing Eye Care in Ghana


The Anglican Eye Clinic (now a hospital) is in the Ashanti region of Ghana. Jachie is about 10 miles from the centre of Kumasi, the second largest city in Ghana. Since it was established in 2002, the clinic has grown from strength to strength. It is now recognised as providing exceptional eye care in the Ashanti region. Many people travel a long way to be seen at the clinic.

A major enhancement to the services provided occurred in 2019/20 when donations of equipment and money from Germany and the UK enabled the clinic to offer eye surgery and laser treatments (including a laser enabled to perform SLT – Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty – for glaucoma).

As a consequence, the Ghanaian health department officially upgraded the clinic to hospital status in March 2020.

Mission statement:
To provide first class treatment of eye conditions to all patients regardless of colour or creed.

Vision statement:

  • To provide quality eye care in a pleasant environment with the highest quality sterilisation procedures in place.
  • To provide outreach programs at the neighbouring schools and communities and to implement preventative eye health care.
  • To provide an opportunity for mission-minded eye professionals to volunteer their services.
