More than 200 patients in Tanzania were checked up and diagnosed by Polish ophthalmologists who were volunteers from the Poznań Redemptoris Missio Foundation.
The Polish doctors travelled to Africa at the end of May and took a special microscope and equipment necessary for operations.
On Thursday, they announced that their work being carried out in the Sisters of Saint Elizabeth mission hospital in Maganzo in Tanzania was coming to an end.
“Many of the examined people need much more complex operations which must be carried out in the hospital in Tanzania’s capital. In addition to diagnostics and sight examinations, our team also prepared an ophthalmology office and trained local staff to use the equipment which the doctors took to Africa,” the foundation stated.
