The Gift of Sight


 
 

Watch what happens when Dr. Gudata Hinika and his team at Negele Arsi General Hospital and Medical College, It Is Written Ministry, and world-renowned eye surgeon Dr. Jacob Prabhakar launch a record-breaking eye surgery mission in Negele Arsi.

For countries in Sub-Saharan Africa (like Ethiopia), the WHO recommends a cataract surgery rate of 2,000 operations per million per year to address the current backlog of cataract cases. Ethiopia’s cataract surgery rate is 360 per million per year.

At Negele General Hospital and Medical College, we stand with the World Health Organization in promoting Vision 2020, which aims to eliminate preventable blindness — which affects about 1 billion people every year.
