Paediatric Eye Surgeries in Wajir, February 2022

Safe Surgical Aid conducted a 2-week long paediatric eye camp at the Wajir County Referral Hospital from 19th to 28th February 2022. United Hands Relief & Development sponsored the camp. Hundred and Twenty Two (122) cases of eye consults for Children between the ages of 5 to 16 years were done, out of which 52 children were booked for Eye surgeries. Four (4) guardians declined the surgery for the children, and we referred two cases for further specialized care that was not available in Wajir. The camp registered successful eye operation of 46 children.

Overall Patient Statistics

Childhood eye conditions that ultimately lead to blindness are quite common across the country and especially in Northern Kenyan. This is majorly due to lack of enough paediatric eye specialists in the region. Safe surgical Aid is committed to playing a major role in the eradication of childhood blindness.
