EYE SURGERY CLINICS

Twice a year at our Magambua dispensary (health center) we host a Tanzanian eye surgery team from Mvumi Mission Hospital. They bring all their own equipment, including a portable operating microscope, and borrow our generator in order to perform various eye surgeries, most of them cataract surgeries. At each clinic they typically screen 50-70 patients and perform 20-35 surgeries. We do the local ‘advertising’, and provide food, lodging, and transportation cost for the team.
