Sixth Cataract Surgery Camp Organised by Assist RR ‏

We are happy to inform that another cataract surgery camp organised by Assist RR and sponsored by Gods Own Children Foundation was successfully completed today (03/08/14) in Mannar. Surgeon, Dr Dias Jeyasiri, carried out surgeries to 98 patients single handed. The local eye doctor asked to convey the gratitude of the local people to the donors and organisers. He also mentioned that they already have another 200 patients on their waiting list. He is very keen to have another camp soon in Mannar. Assist RR will endeavour to fund and arrange another camp with the support of Vision 2020. Assist RR and people of East and North are indebted to Dr Dias for his selfless services to the vulnerable and poor patients. Dr Dias has now completed nearly 600 surgeries organised by Assist RR in the East and North of Sri Lanka. Assist RR also wish to express its gratitude for the financial support of Gods Own Children Foundation of Australia to this camp. Finally, we would like to thank Vision 2020, in particular Dr Asela Abeydeera, for their continued support in organising surgery camps in the East and North of Sri Lanka.
