August 2022


The students produced this video to give you a taste of what their week was like.

In August 2022 nine Amigos Eye Care students from Pacific University traveled with Enfoque Ixcán to Guatemala for our 18th joint mission trip serving the people of Ixcán, Guatemala.  In their 4 days of clinics they saw 755 patients and dispensed 334 pairs of glasses.  They also diagnosed over 55 people needing cataract surgeries.  Many of these people will be traveling with Enfoque Ixcán’s eye health promoters within the next month, to the Guatemalan eye clinic where their cataract surgeries will be performed.

Your donations help keep this program moving forward.  THANK YOU!
