UAE group conducts 500 eye surgeries in Somalia
Abu Dhabi, May 20 (IANS/WAM) An international team of ophthalmologists, sponsored by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Red Crescent Authority, have conducted eye surgeries for over 500 Somali patients.
The RCA doctors conducted several complicated eye surgeries including eye lens implant on a total of 504 people with cataract and glaucoma.
Somalia's National Eye Center, a non-governmental facility dedicated to eradication of blindness, has said that lack of efforts to combat blindness as a result of the ongoing civil war could make more than 500,000 Somalis lose their sight.
The RCA also distributed medicines to 1,500 poor patients in Somalia.
