According to Vision Council of America, over 70% of all minors in El Salvador have non-diagnosed visual problems. Additionally, strabismus and “lazy eye” affects 4 of every 100 children under the age of 6 in El Salvador.
In response to this problem, SCF helped fund a medical clinic that had been severely damaged by an earthquake. Thanks to the new construction, volunteer doctors are now performing hundreds of eye surgeries per month. Between clinics in San Salvador and Fudem, volunteer ophthalmologists perform an average of 25 surgeries daily.
Please help scf fund more life changing surgeries.
