We are excited that our partners in Meru, EDFRI International NGO, have provided a very spacious building in Meru allowing us the opportunity to establish a permanent base for the clinic and outreach work to the marginalised communities. The running costs are being met by EDFRI International, allowing all our resources to go directly to providing much needed eye care.
The permanent clinic will be run by a trained eye care professional who will be able to see around 100 people week. Twice yearly team visits will enable specialised clinics to see over a thousand people during the two week period. Facilities being established are: an open plan clinic, private consulting rooms and up to 50 residential rooms and a waiting area to accommodate several hundred people.
