Our team conducted three offshore programs in September and October – to Situbondo (East Java), Merauke (Papua) and a training program for government clinic personnel in Mimika (Papua). A total of 5,710 people with eye problems were checked and 366 received sight-restoring operations. 2,790 visually impaired people received a pair of glasses and 750 were treated for eye infections.
In Situbondo 36 people were fitted with a custom-made artificial eye made onsite by JFF’s ocularist.
Sincere thanks to the donors who made these programs possible – Reliable Education, Des Lim & Jing Gong, Australian Consulate-General Makassar and LPMAK West Papua.
We were very pleased to be joined in the Situbondo program by members of the Reliable Education Group who came to see firsthand the outcomes of their support.
