More from the Surgical Mission

Rod Butler sent us a sampling from his photos of the 2014 surgical mission, showing the group at work:

Above top, our volunteer nurse prepares patients for surgery; middle, surgeon Bruce and scrub tech in the midst of a cataract surgery; below, surgeon Tony with a patient.

And here is the surgical team, gathered at the Santisima Trinidad retreat house where the group stayed:

Darren sends the statistics for this hard-working group of volunteers:
  • 58 surgeries
  • 55 patients
  • 48 cataracts
  • 10 pterigiums
  • 1 patient, two pterigiums 
  • 2 patients, cataract and pterigium
Now that's a good week's work!
