Democratic Republic of the Congo
Eye clinics for a huge country
Our new Mwangaza Eye Clinic in Kolwezi in the Democratic Republic of the Congo went into service in 2016; the name mwangaza means “light”. Local inhabitants are being trained on site as ophthalmologists for the clinic. With this project, we are ramping up our efforts in the fight against avoidable blindness in a region in which ophthalmological care has been greatly lacking.
