Papua New Guinea Eye Surgical Mission Trip

This is a photo recap of week 1 on the YWAM medical ship Australia.
We are in Morobe province where the villages are not accessible by road. The ship has about 100 young volunteers from 17 countries. The volunteers get to the villages by dinghy and bring out the blind people for eye surgeries.
All together for 2 weeks of outreach we did 134 eye surgeries, pulled 200 teeth, hundreds of dental fillings, tested 100 samples and found 14 people with TB, they are being treated for TB. We give medical exam to children and adults in all the villages.
We gave out close to 2000 tooth brushes and tooth pastes. We screened close to 1000 people for eye conditions and gave out 800 pairs of reader glasses.
We taught children how to brush their teeth, adults how to take care of their health. Many new moms are taught how to care for their babies.
Young girls are given a gift bags for those special “girl days” of the month. We fix many many wounds on skin from no shoes and hitting trees and branches.
Here are some pictures of our wonderful work in Papua New Guinea!
We did so much and shared so much joy and love to the people of Papua New Guinea!
