They write – “Thanks to Surgical Eye Expedition (SEE) International, an operating microscope was given to Cap-Haitian, at the Ophthalmological Center of the Baptist Convention of Haiti, in June 2019. The Ophthalmological Center of the Baptist Convention of Cap-Haitian has been working for more than 30 years, offering its services to the most deprived of the departments of North, North-East, North-West, Center and Artibonite of the Republic of Haiti.
“The report we are presenting to you concerns the ophthalmic surgeries carried out using the operating microscope, generously donated, by SEE International. A total of 114 surgeries have been done.
“Dear Loved ones, Above is recent report from Dr. Dupoy, the surgeon of the eye clinic. We have wanted an operating microscope for some time but have not been able to find one at a reasonable price. Fortunately, they were granted one by the Surgical Eye Expedition in June 2019. Since then it has been used for 114 surgeries thru November 2019. That number is down due to the rioting in the last two months. Most were for cataract removal but there were also some other needs such as corneal lacerations. We praise God for this gift that expands the care the eye clinic can provide for the poor.”
Nzunga and Kihomi’s MPT Communications Advocate & Convener Denny Shewell writes –
Dear Friends, This is wonderful news. Every one of the 114 that have benefited from this gift either had their sight greatly improved or regained their sight completely. The clinic is literally carrying out part of Jesus mission when he said he came to give sight to the blind. …
Pray that the problems cease and a new Haiti emerges that cares for all of the citizens.
Recently kidnappings have been happening. Pray they also stop.
Pray for Nzunga’s and Kihomi’s safety.
