Our Mobile Outreach Project has two teams which travel across the West Bank every week. One Mobile Outreach team typically sees between 8,000 and 10,000 Palestinians each year. The Outreach van is fully equipped with specialised medical equipment for screening patients suffering from a variety of eye conditions.
Our doctors and nurses examine the patients and then refer any who have serious conditions to our hospital in Jerusalem or to one of our medical centres in the north and south of the West Bank. All patients are screened free of charge. If treatment is required, patient treatment is either subsidised or completely waived.
Eye health education is also delivered to patients and their families. This is through education workshops and one-on-one sessions. With their eyesight returned, the ultimate goal of this project will be for people to find work and return to education.
