The power of partnerships

Today (November 21st 2017) we got news of the first results from the Eye Clinics which our partners Primrose Magala and Sebastian Waiswas have organised in Uganda with help from Moorfields Hospital doctors and nurses.

All our Uganda and Rwanda work is with partners and what is achieved is many times greater than anything we could do alone.

The picture shows them both with Sr Evangelista who is leading the Lira Girls School project.


Here is an extract what Sebastian told us;

Am glad to report to you that our children I brought yesterday and today got assessed, received surgeries and treatment. While others who have difficult conditions have been advised to seek specialized treatment in other hospitals.
Among those who underwent cataract, and squint surgeries include ; Keith and  colonius both squints and Geoffrey with cataract who is in the theater as I write now.
Abdallah was give spectacles.
Carol given eye drops but advised that when she knocks 12 years she will undergo surgery of squints and bilateral conjuctictivis.
Racheal with corneal scars and posterior synachea of the left eye which was found blind and so no any other intervention can be done to correct it.

We also received a lovely picture of the Nursery level children who attend our Rwanda School and who have just "graduated" to primary level.
