GX Foundation’s project team recommences work in Laos field office

GX Foundation’s project team and local staff have recommenced work in the Laos field office since April 2022. Following a brief hiatus as a result of the pandemic, the GX team will be based in Lao for two months and begin preparation work for the upcoming Cataract Blindness Elimination Project, with the support of local and international partners. GX team is embedded within the local offices of board member China Construction and Communication Company, who are a keen supporter of the project in Lao. In 2019, GX signed a 5-year Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry to collaborate on the Cataract Blindness Elimination Project which aimed to eliminate nation-wide cataract backlog cases through expert Chinese medical teams from Guangxi province and 2 Mobile Eye Treatment Centres.
