In Mid-May, a 3-person team of ophthalmic surgeons and nurses arrived in Rafidiah Hospital for a week of cataract surgery on poor people in the northern West Bank. Led by Dr. Roberto Jules from El Salvador and Baillie Brown from California, the team provided dozens of poor people sight-saving cataract surgery.
Baillie has participated in dozens of missions to Nablus over the past 10 years and thousands of poor people have had their sight saved through our volunteer teams.
