The next Eye Mission will be to Senegal Africa! Oct 18th to Nov 2nd. We will be traveling with the Mercy Ship Crew to complete a backlog of cataract cases from the last year.
It will take us 2 days to get to Lomé, 🛫 where will have our eye 👀 camp in a local hospital for 10 days. While we are flying over, the team in country has already started screening people for eye surgeries. 👏👏👏 Without any announcement yet, they already lined up more than 100 cases of adult surgeries and 5 pediatric surgeries. 👍👍👍 Here are a few pictures of the team in Togo working hard at screening patients for us. 👀👀👀
✈️🌎 Our bags are packed. We are ready to go on our trip to Togo, Africa on Saturday February 9! Here is Dr. Kondrot getting a number of mandatory shots before we can begin working in the hospital in Africa. Yellow fever, TB test, Hep A and Hep B, tetanus, diphtheria, MMR, long list of other shots but we won’t be allowed to work in the hospital unless we have all our shots. It’s mandatory for all surgeons in the operating rooms.
We are now ready to go!
