GFV’s Indigenous clinics expand. Base Kit for Liberia Eye Clinic dedicated.
We are pleased to announce the expansion of GFV Indigenous Clinics to the country of Liberia.
On Sunday, October 24, we were privileged to have Jim Malin join us for the dedication of the base eye kit for ICM-Liberia.
GFV’s Indigenous clinics are designed to train and equip locals to conduct basic eye screenings and dispense readers, distance eyeglasses and sunglasses.
The program provides a simple low cost and low risk service to communities where these services are not readily available or affordable.
Robert Luqui, head of ICM-Liberia, participated in the dedication and will be returning to Liberia for the targeted launch of the eye clinic in early January.
The base kit which includes 2 Refraction Kits, 520 pairs of eyeglasses, bi-focal sunglasses and related supplies will be followed by several thousand pairs of readers, eyeglasses and sunglasses.
Present for the dedication were GFV board members: Dr Lizzie Brooks, Dr Vikarma Brooks, Dr Donna Elcock, Leon Elcock and John Elcock.
