Authorities of the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho on May 19 received representatives of the organization regarding the integration of an eye screening project into annual health examination for children in 2023.
Vice Chairman of the municipal People's Committee Nguyen Thuc Hien spoke highly of Obis' projects which help residents in the Mekong Delta access high-quality eye care services, asking the organization to care more for rural children.
He assigned relevant agencies to support and build specific plans for the launch of projects.
Doris Macharia, Senior Vice President of Global Programs of Orbis International, expressed her hope that in the coming year, hospitals and relevant agencies in Can Tho will continue to work with the non-profit organization in the implementation of programs providing children with eye screening and improving skills of health workers in ophthalmology.
Orbis will cover the fees for the services for about 500 poor and pre-school children, improve capacity of health workers in the community, teachers and school nurses through three-week training courses in May 2023, she added.
The organization has worked with the health sector of Can Tho to roll out various eye care projects for children, particularly the Orbis Flying Eye Hospital, which provides eye treatment for more than 200 patients and improves skills for some 100 ophthalmologists.
In 2017, the organization began its project to support children in the Mekong Delta and present medical supplies to local hospitals.
