Help purchase Life-Altering Medical Equipment
This machine, known as a Phaco (phacoemulsification) Machine, is an essential piece of medical equipment at our Khanjanpur Mission Eye Hospital in Bangladesh. It has recently fallen into disrepair and an immediate replacement is necessary. Without this machine, the healing time for cataract surgery can be between 3 to 4 weeks, which leaves some patients out of work for a month. This is something most cannot afford, and that means they go untreated. With this machine, patients often return to work within 3 to 4 days. Dr. John Costa, the director of our Mission in Bangladesh and the director of the Eye Clinic, estimates that approximately 60% of the revenue made by the clinic is generated by this single machine. A new machine not only helps more patients but also helps our hospital become self-sustaining and financially stable. We hope to raise $23,000 to help secure a new Phaco machine.
