Eye surgery in Beira

New eye clinic for 2 million people

Ophthalmological care and assistance to help individuals lead an independent life are at the top of our list of priorities in Mozambique. With the new Invicta eye clinic in Beira, Central Mozambique has gained a central clinic for two million people and a training centre for specialized personnel who can also work far from the major cities.

Establishing a permanent network of medical ophthalmic care in rural regions of Mozambique is an important objective for LIGHT FOR THE WORLD. Accordingly, in future we will make it possible for even more examinations and operations to be conducted than has been the case, both decentrally at health units and at the new eye clinic.
