Corporate and Institutional Support
“I feel very fortunate to watch eye clinics that I founded years ago flourish,” said Mario Angi, MD, president of the Christian Blind Mission Italy. “However, eye care in the Horn of Africa continues to be challenged by the lack of trained ophthalmic professionals.”
