Dear Loved Ones,

Thank you first and foremost for your gracious support that has kept our ministries functioning and improving countless lives across Haiti. We never take for granted the sacrifices you and your families make to help the destitute of Haiti.

On behalf of all our past and future patients, on behalf of our staff and of our own family, we come humbly again to say THANK YOU and to wish you a blessed New Year 2012. It is our fervent prayer that God of love will grant you peace and all His rich blessings.

The year that has just ended has been a blessed year for the eye clinic. God has been good in keeping all of us in good physical condition. He has watched after the many patients who have trusted our clinic for their eye care.

In 2011 we saw 5610 patients. We performed 181 operations: cataract surgeries or life changing surgeries, reparation of cornea, and other corrective vision operations. We serviced many other needs including checkups and treatment for glaucoma patients. We are deeply involved in the eye glasses that help people see or read well.

We have come to learn that behind each eye glass we give out or behind each eye surgery we perform here, there is a story.  A beautiful story of someone being able to see well again, to be able to care for his family again, to work or read his Bible again.  There is always a story of somebody being able to go to school again. 

We organized two Glaucoma screening days and saw 221 patients in those two days; two free eye glasses days where we consulted 343 patients in the city of Cap-Haitian and shared 184 eye glasses, one free eye glasses day in the City of Fort-Liberte where we checked on 201 patients and 196 glasses were given out.
.

We bought a new diesel generator which has been a big relief when operating on patients. And the new vehicle has freed us from worrying about transportation. We can go now where patients need us the most.

We also received student nurses from the city of Gonaives for their internship at our clinic. Thus their choice of our clinic has made us a teaching clinic in the northern part of Haiti. Those students were a big addition to our staff as they all mingled well in their learning/teaching experience.

We would not be able to do this kind of ministries without your prayers and your support of all kinds. Thank you for sustaining our ministries in Haiti.

Yours at the eye clinic in Haiti,

Nzunga Mabudiga & Kihomi Ngwemi.

 

 

Dear Supporters,

 

A story behind every surgery and pair of glasses.  This is why they do what they do and why we support therm.   Jesus did not wave his hand and cure 1000’s.  All of his healings are about individuals that found new life while they were living and if they had “ears to hear” received eternal life as well.  The eye clinic is like a shining light among the darkness as they bring life changing sight to so many.  Thank you for your support.

 

In His Grace and Peace,
