How Are Your Donations Important?
As you may know, almost every year for the past 27 years, Dr. Haines has gone on missions around the world to provide free cataract removal surgeries for the medically underserved. Many of these people have been blind for years, and often times cannot work, or even take care of themselves. Some have been cataract-blind for so many years that they don’t even know what their own grandchildren look like! This is where Dr. Haines and the Give Me Sight Foundation come in to help.
In fact, just this last month (November), Dr. Haines’ and his surgical team were met in Myanmar by counterpart and long-time friend, Thai ophthalmologist, Dr. Somsran Watanachote and her surgical team out of Thailand. There, they returned the gift of sight to people who had been blind for years with free cataract-removal surgeries!
Our Next Mission? THIS January to Guatemala!
The work of Dr. Haines and the Give Me Sight Foundation continues! Soon we will take the same team to Guatemala to conduct free cataract-removal surgeries for the medically underserved in that country. Your generous donations will enable is to give the gift of sight to countless people in this beautiful part of the world.
