I recently travelled with a group from Seva Canada to a one day Eye Camp set up in a remote Malagasy village. Candidates for corrective surgery and other procedures to treat preventable blindness were identified. Among them, several children who we followed on their journey from the village to the hospital in the highland town of Antsirabe, where they underwent operations this morning.
Many of these conditions could be prevented, cured or managed with better-funded rural outreach programs. Seva Canada supports the work of surgeons and eye care workers throughout the Madagascar to change lives and give kids like these a chance of a life free of blindness. A donation of just $150 can save a child's sight through cataract and other surgeries and treatments. To learn more, visit www.seva.ca.
