Eyes on the Future

Dear friends,

The last time you have had an update from us, we have told you all about what we have achieved in the last period. In this report, we are doing it differently and we want to look ahead with you. Literally. 

We would like to share with you that the Pediatric Eye Care Outreach is about to go live any day soon. This is a project that is a close collaboration of Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre (KCMC), FT Kilimanjaro and, our foundation, which aims to reduce preventable blindness and resolve severe vision problems of children in Lower Moshi. 

In Sub-Saharan Africa, 1.24 out of 1000 children are blind, while 50% of such childhood blindness is preventable in areas like Lower Moshi. Therefore, early intervention is essential. And that's where our Pediatric Eye Care Outreach steps in. This outreach delivers yearly pediatric eye clinics to villages in Lower Moshi for children aged 0-14 years. When severe eye problems are detected, children will be referred to KCMC so they will receive the care needed. Moreover, we will provide relevant education to villagers to generate awareness and help in the early detection of eye diseases. 

We will start with a pilot after which the results will be analyzed carefully. After that, we can take the next steps, and service a broader area with the outreach program. We look forward to sharing the results! 

Kind regards,
Team Driving Nurses
