The 10 year celebration of our club – John Fawcett Foundation at Payangan held on 26th and 27th July, was a success – treating 397 adults, 26 Children, 8 cataract surgeries performed, 269 pairs of glasses distributed, and 120 medications. Of the 8 surgeries 5 need the other eye operated on also. One grade 6 girl needs to have both eyes operated on for cataracts. We will follow up with JFF and families to be sure this is done.
