Eye clinic is open

What a difference a month can make. We are so thankful for our advance team and local construction crews that have worked around the clock to get our eye clinic ready for patients to use.

Now our ophthalmology team can begin the work of restoring sight to people in Madagascar. The eye clinic will also host “The Celebration of Sight” where patients will come for their follow-up appointments and share how grateful they are to have their site returned to them. Kathryn Stock, ophthalmology supervisor, shares the impact that sight restoration can have:

“Sometimes the sparks happen when the bandages come off but sometimes there is just confusion and awe and it’s not until they return for their two-week follow-up that you truly see their excitement. They can see their kids and grandkids and everything around them. It is a wonderful time.”
