Report from Dr. Steve Friberg: Second annual eye clinics in Gelai Bomba, Wosiwosi and Makat

treating-eye-patientsIn May, working again with our partners at the Lutheran clinics, we held our second annual eye clinics in Gelai Bomba, Wosiwosi and Makat.  Dr. Steve Friberg reports:

“Approx 50 pts were treated for minor problems.  10 pts are waiting for surgery at KCMC [Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Center): 6 cataracts, 1 trauma, 1 glaucoma, 1 lid rotation, 1 advanced pterigium.   Four of the referred patients were from Wosiwosi.   We were happy that more complicated patients could be referred forward this time.”

We are also able to facilitate transport and partly subsidize hospital treatment.  HOWEVER, we must now fundraise for next year’s clinic.
