When the vision team traveled to Choluteca in November, 2017, they set up and operated a vision clinic as we have since 2015. But, this year Dr. Michael St. Peter came home with a new mission…
…provide cataract surgery to 21 people he had treated in the clinic.
For the small cost of $128, sight can be restored that will otherwise be lost forever. We knew we had to get busy: Dennis setup a paypal account, Scott Brown created a website page, and Michael posted the information needed to raise the funds. Within a couple of days, we had raised over $3400, more than the amount needed to fund these surgeries. While these 21 patients will receive this surgery, there will be others who need this simple operation. We encourage and appreciate any donations you can make for this new vision.
