Zambia Update: Praise From The Daily Mail

June 17, 2014 – We have a Zambia update! The Daily Mail has published a glowing article on the volunteer work that our SEE Docs are carrying out in southern Africa. The heartwarming piece focuses on Peter Mwale. Peter is a 47-year old family man from Chongwe District, near the Zambian capital of Lusaka. As Peter grew older, he began to develop a cataract in his right eye. This made it difficult to work and provide for his family. Luckily, he learned that SEE Docs would be traveling to Chongwe District Hospital, providing free eye screenings and conducting cataract removal surgeries. You can read the full story here.

Overall, this piece is a wonderful reminder of the amazing effect that our volunteer doctors and generous donors can have in places like Zambia. A simple 20-minute operation can mean so much. It can make the difference between whether or not somebody can see. A parent who can see, can provide for his or her family. As SEE works to expand its efforts at providing free eye care throughout Africa, we look forward to hearing more encouraging stories like Peter’s.
