Hope.

   As the world accepts that the virus will be forever with us , borders are re-opening.

This permits travel and importantly, shipmentb of medical supplies to Cambodia, Laos, and the Philippines where

THE BLINDNESS FOUNDATION  does its work.

 

   We have supplies on hand ready for shipment. These are sent ahead of our Eye Missions,

   to have everything already in place on our arrival.

 Encouragingly ,it apprears that as we have been invited to help with the treatment programs for the blind,

Cambodia should be fully open in the fall of this year,  2022.

 Once travel is arranged  THE BLINDNESS FOUNDATION contacts the US medical supply and intra-ocular lens

companies for medical materiel and support. This has been put on hold during the US lockdowns.

  Our office handles the re-packaging and shipments through the US Postal Service, which is removing restrictions

bit by bit each month.

Thank you for all your kind support , persistence and resolve in helping us carry on during this trying period.

Bless you all,

DR CHRISTOPHER LYON

CAMBODIAN EYE MISSION

 

Exciting times:

                       with Covid cresting, we may be able to resume our Eye Missions  this year.

Currentlty stymied with shipment delays , in part due to the US Postal Service hold on ship,ments into SE Asia

However, we are tentatively resuming our Laos Eye Mission in December, having received several requests for textbooks

( heavy- expensive to ship ) and surgical supplies for their cataract outreach program.

 

  Should this take place, then the Cambodian Eye mission will run in January-February next year.

 

Thank you all for your ongoing support during this once-in-a-lifetime pandemic event.

 

Bless you all

       THE BLINDNESS FOUNDATION thanks all if its supporters during this trying time , when most of SE Asia is in lockdown. Hopefully, we will be back for Eye Mission in Laos and Cambodia this fall.

        Our goal of 100,000 lens implants donated to blind people throught the region is in sight.

         To date we have, with your kind support, amassed over 66,000 intra-ocular donations from US companies and arranged for them to be place in cataractous eyes throughout the region. These together with operating microscopes , local Eye surgeons and med-surgical supplies have restored vision to countless blind people within this geographical sphere.

        Our capital fund target , required to sustain our Eye Missions well into the future remains at $ 10 million.

    With your kind help we will get there.

 Laos has asked for Ophthalmology textbooks and educational material for their young Ophthalmologists, However the US Postal Service has suspended shipments during the shut-down. When thet re-open we can resume accrual and shipment of both lens implants and textbooks.

 Thank you for youe un-wavering and kind generous support

       THE BLINDNESS FOUNDATION'S collaoboration with the PHNOM PENH CSC Surgery Center

and the University of Health Sciences Ophthalmology Department contiues to help treat and cure blindness in the poorer Cambodian people.

We are gearing up for another Cambodian Eye Mission tba in the fall as the covid recedes.

Our last mission in December 2020 was able to achieve training of the Ophthalmology Residents in reconstructive surgery techniques to improve their skill- sets in managing land mine injuries and facial burns.

 This is in addition to THE BLINDNESS FOUNDATION donating medical supplies to continue the 2000 cataract surgeries performed annually at CSC and its Cataract Outreach Program. 

 Several hundred lens implants were dontaed and shipped to help cure cataract blindness in over 400 blind Cambodians.

 Your help is needed to complete this valuable work and provide additional suppoert in the coming Fall cambodian Eye mission

 Thank you all for your kind and generous support,
