Artists for World Peace 2016 Eye Clinic
We are in the planning stages for our return to the village of Kibosho-Umbwe, and the Good Hope Orphanage. Building on the success of our 2014 eye clinic, Artists for World Peace will be returning in August of 2016 with an eye care team headed by Dr. Carol Gordon and Ray Dennis. The response to our 2014 eye clinic was overwhelming, and we are in the process of building a team that can provide eye care to all who attend. Over 1500 patients have been seen with services ranging from eye examinations and fitting of glasses, to cataract surgeries.
We are very excited to be partnering with Vision Health International. VHI will be training local eye surgeons on the latest surgery techniques and equipment.

Vision is your link to all the things in the world: the beauty around you, your key to self-sufficiency. Health care, particularly in a region where so many are self-employed as farmers, is essential. Blindness from glaucoma is entirely preventable, with the right care and treatment.
As of August 2015, 40 surgeries have been paid for and 5 one-day clinics! Let’s keep giving the gift of sight.
