Help for visually impaired people

Our foundation also helps people with visual problems. From the company Tempel Opticiens we get a lot of glasses, with prescription lenses. These glasses are checked in the hospital by an ophthalmologist and given to the right patients. For a number of women from the village of Toniataba we paid for a cataract operation. Cataract is very common in The Gambia. A cataract surgery on one eye costs € 50,-. With a (for us) small amount we can already contribute a lot to someone’s well-being.
