In the most recent mission in 2019 (pre-pandemic), we had a total of about 1000 patients came for screening and only 375 patients were qualified to do the surgeries. They were blind from cataracts and other diseases. Some were only able to see light or darkness and now, they got their vision back 20/20. Some said they had been listening to the voices of their kids & new grandkids and imagining what the grandkids might look like but now they are so overwhelmed with emotion that they can see what their grandkids actually look like. It is a dream come true for them all.
These seniors were so excited and very thankful to have their vision back.
Needless to say, this is a very meaningful project that Tam Ky Project is very passionate about helping each year. We are hoping to bring sight back for at least 100 or more seniors each year for only $50 per patient.
Thank you for your interest in contributing to this project.
