Since 2009, HARDA has supported a long term project that has been focusing on providing eye care free of charge, through eye care mission in the poor communities of the Horn of Africa.
In late 2017, HARDA purchased an ophthalmic surgical periscope for the use of cataract and other surgical operations in rural Africa. This is the second microscope that HARDA has purchased, The first device has been used more than 9000 times for examination, diagnosis and 4000 surgeries for cataract. It has also benefited 15,000 persons in respect of trachoma, conjunctivitis and glaucoma.
The partners in this project are HARDA, Global Aid Foundation, the Clark Foundation and Warda. We have photos of the most recent mission
