6,240 lives transformed

To Orbis with love
To Orbis with love

We had a great start to a wonderful year, thanks to your help. You enabled us to be able to provide essential medical equipment to screen the eyes of children, including providing ROP (Retinopathy of Prematurity) screening. Babies born 1800 grams or less than 33 weeks of age are at risk of ROP.

We produced educational materials to raise the awareness of eye care for children at Can Tho Children Hospital (CTCH) and Can Tho Eye-Ondontology Stomalogy Hospital (CTEH).

Your support contributed effectively to improve the quality of eye care for children in Mekong Delta. It gives hope to newborn and helps to prevent unnescessary blindness among children in Mekong region.

The number of babies who received ROP screening (including new and return cases) at CTCH from July to October 2018 was 242. We referred 8 ROP cases for laser treatment. 917 children received eye treatment, minor surgery and refractive error examination. The total beneficiaries impacted from the start of this project in September 2017 till now is an incredible 6,240.

As of 24 January 2019, we are USD8,243 away to conclude this project, and we know we couldn’t have done it without you.

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.

 

Most grateful,

Elaine
