2011 Canvasback Missions to Ebeye Islands
EYEsee supported Canvasback Missions’ health missions to the Republic of Marshall Islands and the Federated States of Micronesia with a donation of 500 recycled eyeglasses in 2011. In October 2011, Canvasback conducted a health mission in Ebeye Island, a tiny atoll in a remote part of the Pacific Ocean, where residents go without access to eye care, even if it means that they go blind. Physician volunteers performed 207 eye surgeries, which mean 207 Ebeye Islanders now have the gift of sight. Other people received improved vision from the free eyeglasses they received.
