This month Fundación Metrofraternidad and Hospital Metropolitano in Quito and our Foundation collaborated in 5 eye surgeries.
Here are the first two.
2 year old Dena suffered from Aphakia...a condition in which there is no lens in the eye. Without the surgery this condition causes blurry vision and inability to focus, plus faded color vision.
18 month old Erick suffered from the same condition. Both patients received artificial lenses.
Thanks to the surgeons at Hospital Metropolitano who donated their services, to Fundacion Metrofraternidad for their collaboration and of course, to our donors for giving these children the gift of vision allowing them to have normal, productive lives!
