Lion's Club Cataract Mission in the Philippines - January 2017
A post from Charles G. Irion's travel journal from his trip to the Philippines, January 2017 - I'm waiting for my flight home-A long successful series of missions here in the Philippines. These are our last 2 cataract patients yesterday- the lady couldn't stop crying after we told her she would get the precious gift of sight. We had stopped admitting patients when she came in. Dr Ballecer with his big heart said to make her the last one. The grandpa was carried in on the back of his grandson running upstairs. He was blind but now can see-one eye at least. His cataract was very difficult to remove very dark and large.
