We helped a record number of people on our annual intensive medical mission from July 26 through August 8.
All together, we provided medical service to 7,708 people. Of these about 33% were children. About 33% were Muslims and 66 % Christians. About 60% female and 40% male.
Eye care was provided to 1,500 people and 894 pairs of presciption eye glasses were given to individuals who needed them.
Dental care was provided your 900 people, including many extractions of rotten teeth.
Counseling and prayer we're offered to 6,500 people. Of these, 204 people made a significant spiritual commitment. (Everyone is offered spiritual counseling and prayer, but if they do not wish to receive it, we provide medical care and medicine as we do with event other patient.)
Several patients who were diagnosed with cataracts we're schedule for surgery at our regular clinic in Kateri. On September 19 and 20, a team of eye surgeons conducted an intensive eye clonic. During this two days, 48 people received surgery to remove cataracts.
This year was our best year so far in terms of the number of people we were able to help. Thanks to all of our supporters for making this possible.
