Christian optometry mission to the developing world

Past Missions

September 2016: Kenya

A team consisting of two optometrists a dispenser and three volunteers visited the Maasai community close to Narok about 5 hours drive from Nairobi. Missionary Ventures supplied the ground support and organised the itinerary and the team carried out clinics in three schools and two churches. The area was very remote so the population was quite sparse and spread out, but during the week 394 glasses were dispensed and 67 patients were referred for medical treatment including cataract surgery. This was paid for by donations received by Mission for Vision. It was wonderful to see lives being transformed as vision was restored. Ministry was also carried out at Kebabe Calvary Chapel church where the team was hosted on the final day.
