March 2019 Mission Trip

March 9-16, 2019

Another successful trip!  Our group of twelve members worked hard to help provide eye examinations to over 150 people.  This included 25 sight-restoring cataract surgeries and two ear surgeries by Dr. Tim Courville who joined us this year.  One teenage patient had an unusual congenital defect of her ear and he was able to correct the problem.  He and his team are planning a return visit to tackle more Ear, Nose and Throat problems.

Additionally we had two other eye surgeons besides Dr. Bowers.  Dr. Paul Kang, from the Washington DC area, and Dr. Pulin Shah, from New Orleans, helped in providing cataract surgeries.  They also plan in returning with their own teams.  We are blessed to have so many willing to volunteer their time and talents in caring for the indigent of Roatan Honduras.  Many thanks to those who have help our mission financially!
