Thank you Rotarians of Limbe

We finally did it.
It was nice seeing so many people from Mulanje regain their Sight after we did Cataract surgeries at Mulanje district hospital on 20th and 21st April 2012.
Frank Mbewe my right hand man did most of the work and I am very proud of him.
Bravo to the team that went to Mulanje.
Rotarians, please support more of these eye camps.
Cataract remains the common cause of blindness in MALAWI with over 20,000 blind from the disease.
An operation to remove cataract takes less than 15 minutes (in the experience hands) so these people should not suffer unnecessarily.
What is needed is to support the team to be able to go and perform surgeries. In 2011 Malawi had a zero deficit budget; which meant zero community eye activities.

Blantyre Institute for community Ophthalmology BICO   my unit couldnt  help.

Should more Malawians be supporting cataract surgeries from their pockets?
