Beach Eye Care has partnered with Physicians for Peace to bring awareness of the shortfall in eye care in developing countries like the Philippines. The poor level of health care in strapped countries contributes to poverty and restricts economic growth. By offering cataract surgery and a simple pair of glasses to our neighbors in need, we allow them to work and provide for their families. No one should be denied the ability to see.
Dr. Neatrour will lead a group of medical professionals to the Philippines in mid-July to perform cataract surgery, teach local professionals, educate the resident Filipinos on diabetes/eye health, and distribute glasses. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to fund the medical equipment and supplies needed to help our neighbors see in Surigao del Sur, Philippines. Our fundraiser at Yotini’s Yogurt Bar successfully launched our journey.
