WHAT WE DO?
With a team formed by ophthalmology assistants and a receptionist we visit the urban areas, sites and rural communities of all the cantons of the province of Manabí providing basic eye care.
In order to provide better care, visits are coordinated with institutions, associations, municipal boards of trustees or community leaders who, knowledgeable about their environment, gather patients to be attended by the Foundation’s staff.
