655 eye patients treated at Kupiano

More than 2,000 people also attended health promotion sessions.

The land-based healthcare team, in partnership with local health workers and the Abau District Administration, delivered optometry services, dental procedures and health education at Kupiano's Health Centre.

One of the patients seen was a 35 year-old mother of four named Openi. Openi was considered legally blind and could only see two metres in front of her. YWAM’s optometry team fitted Openi with a pair of glasses which enabled her to read, and see half-way down the vision acuity chart.
