BENEFITING: WORLD HEALTH DENTAL ORGANIZATION
In October 2011 two ophthalmologists along with three nurses, will do field cataract surgeries using a modern dental clinic near Maasai Mara National Reserve for ten days. They know from experience, they can do ten to fifteen operations each day.
The doctors have asked if we could get any financial help for the cost of the plastic lenses needed to give site. The cost per patient is approximately $20.00 and they hope to treat at least 122 to 150 patients. Imagine to see clearly, read, and in some cases not needing a person to lead you for $20.00.
If we could raise the money for the plastic lenses, it would be a symbolic statement of support for the doctors and nurses giving so much!
