They traveled to Accra, Ghana to work in the North Western Eye Clinic where they provided clinical care and conducted screenings for eye disease on children and adults and implemented education programs. Dr. D'Aversa performed sight-restoring surgery on a large number of adult patients. Dr. D'Aversa brought medical supplies and equipment and trained clinic Director Dr. Michael Gyasi how to perform modern cataract surgery using a Phacoemulsification (Phaco) machine.
