similar exercises have been held at Chibi District Hospital in the past, with hundreds
of people from the district and the other places coming to have their sight
restored free-of-charge.
eye camp aims to give relief to people with eye problems like cataracts. This
is a community programme borne out of the desire to help people. We therefore advise
everybody in need of such services to come and receive the requisite medical attention.

advantage of this offer and come for their life-changing experience or bring
their loved one with such challenges. This is not a programme just for the
people of Chivi but is for those in other districts as well. We understand
there are many people who are living as blind when all they need to get back
