2011 Physicians for Peace Mission
EYEsee supported Physicians for Peace’s ‘Seeing Clearly’ Program with a donation of 3,000 recycled eyeglasses in 2011. Physicians for Peace has volunteer healthcare teams in some of the world’s most desperate regions. In 2011, they deployed 159 volunteers on 48 missions to 16 countries in Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, and Central America. Their volunteer healthcare teams have provided free life-changing care to hundreds of patients around the world. Their ‘Seeing Clearly’ program helps people who cannot afford vision care and the cost of eyeglasses. On July 16-27, 2011, a team of healthcare volunteers conducted a medical mission in Tandag, the capital of Surigao del Sur Province in the Philippines. 813 patients received free vision care, with 80% receiving recycled or pre-made eyeglasses. Over 100 eye surgeries were performed during this mission.
