Andean Medical Mission is a UK charity set up to help organize, build and manage eye care services in remote regions of the Bolivian Amazon and Andean mountains.
We carry out sight saving eye surgery and are committed to helping Bolivian doctors by providing training and equipment. Our vision is their vision, help us and donate today.
We returned again for this year to the villages of Magdalena and Baures for the fourth year. It was great to see previous patients doing well and to attend to the new ones. We returned to the villages of Remanso, Bella Vista and Huacaraje and added in two new areas. We expanded south and west from Itenez to the village of Santo Corazon and to the town of Santa Ana. This was the first time we had been to either of these places and it was a reminder of just how many people are blind in Northern Bolivia. We were swamped. During the 1 month trip we attended over 1350 patients and were operating until 1am some nights. A great team, a great trip, some great results and some very happy patients.
