Providing Eye Care in Ghana

St Barnabas Church & Jachie

St Barnabas Church in Middlesbrough, UK has a longstanding relationship with Jachie Eye Hospital. Roland Cowley, founder of the Jachie Eye Hospital, was a long term member of the church until his death in 2017. Church members continue to support the clinic financially. Members of the church organise various fundraising events. Over the years, various members of the church have visited the clinic and spent time helping at the clinic.

Money given to support the work of the clinic can be gift aided if given via the church office.
