The WENSAH Foundation International, a Sunyani based NGO has funded and facilitated the restoration of sights of Abraham Sarfo, a 7-year-old school drop out, due to visually impairment, at Atronie, in the Sunyani Municipality. 

Abraham Sarfo was schooling at a basic school in the farming community in three years ago where he unfortunately encountered the eye problem and couldn’t see anything again during instructional class hours.

The incident forced him to drop out of school at the very beginning of his academic journey until the WENSAH Foundation’s intervention.

Mr. Osei Amponsah, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the WENSAH Foundation said the NGO  beard the cost of over GH¢2,000 at the St. Ignatius Eye care Center at Abesim, in the Sunyani Municipality to ensure Sarfo’s sights were restored to help him go back to school.

He said the Foundation ensured special eye care services and medications were given for treatment to restored the sights of the boy who was facing the challenge for the past three-years.

Mr. Amponsah explained the Foundation was established with the aim of providing comprehensive welfare and support services to the needy across Ghana, hence, dedicated to ensure Sarfo’s sights were fully restored. 

Sarfo and his other Seven (7) siblings were not schooling again because of family poverty, therefore needed financial assistance, Madam Asieduaa, the mother of Abraham Sarfo pleaded.
