The SEP Team returns from Sumba after a successful May visit

May 16, 2015

The Sumba Eye Program would like to thank all their loyal supporters for enabling the team to continue their life changing work in Sumba.
Just returning from another successful visit, the team were very excited by the progress that the local SEP team nurses have made, allowing for an enormous amount of “one on one teaching” of refracting and pathology with Nefry and Atti ably assisted by Steppan.The team screened 405 people for vision problems, dispensed 276 specs, mostly to poor villagers with no access to any Eyecare and detected 25 people with very advanced cataract (legally blind or much worse) or pterygia.
