Governor Mohamed Adan Khalif of Mandera County proudly announced a collaboration that brought sight and relief to thousands in his jurisdiction. Earlier today, he met with members of the Eye Clinic Camp from the renowned Fred Hollows Foundation.
The non-profit organization’s commitment to providing free eye care services saw them serve the people of Mandera for five consecutive days. Their contribution, however, was not just about the number of days they spent, but the number of lives they touched. In the span of their visit, over 2,000 residents received medical attention, with 295 successful eye operations being performed.
Governor Khalif was moved by the organization’s dedication, expressing the county’s profound gratitude. “It’s more than just the statistics. It’s about the positive ripple effect such acts of kindness have on communities like ours,” said the Governor. He further emphasized the deep impact of such medical missions, which uplift the health and spirits of entire communities.
On behalf of Mandera County residents, Governor Khalif extended heartfelt appreciation for the selfless efforts of the Fred Hollows Foundation. Such partnerships underscore the importance of collective action in advancing public health and well-being.
