You helped open a Paediatric Eye Care Unit!

Dear supporters,

In Q2 of 2018, we served 1,491 children, bumping the total number of little friends who received eye care services since October 2017 to 5,073.

In the first six months of the year, the network of paediatric eye care from the community to the hospital slowly started to form. Now, there is a proper referral network to screen children in the community; identify and refer those with eye conditions to district health centres for eye examinations; and refer those needing treatment to the hospital.

In June 2018, we opened the Paediatric Eye Care Unit in Can Tho Eye Hospital. This means that the hospital now has the capacity to treat complicated eye diseases in children from the Mekong Delta area.

Children can receive treatment without travelling to big cities such as Ho Chi Minh in the south and Hanoi in the north. This means that travel and accommodation expenses are reduced and parents spend shorter time away from work, reducing loss of income. Having a facility near their homes also can increase follow-up rates as it is more convenient for the child and caretaker to travel to the hospital.

We couldn’t have done it without the support of our corporate partners and friends like you, so thank you for helping Vietnam’s little ones get access to quality eye care services!
