Taki Remtulla Volunteers at Eye Camp in Tanzania
Taki Remtulla, Abilita Chief Technology Officer, spends time each year volunteering at a Cataract Surgery camp in Kabaha, a small city located in eastern Tanzania.
Patients report to the Hospital for the unique opportunity of having free treatment for their eyes. Many come with a perception that their eyes will be removed!! Treatments include cataract surgeries to 1 or both eyes, or other ocular pathologies that require medications or corrective glasses.
Treatment also includes post-op evaluation and follow-up care including free eye drops, sunglasses, protective eye shields and pain medication. In many cases, there is great excitement among the patients as they restore their eyesight allowing them to change their life from dependency to independence.
Thank you to Taki for his humanitarian efforts in helping those in need.
