First surgery conducted in Senegal in West Africa, aiming to restore vision for 3000 patients

The Fatick region in Senegal is almost 3 hours away from the capital of Dakar, and there are a significant number of elderly suffering from cataracts. After overcoming various challenges, the GX team successfully managed to deliver the Mobile Eye Treatment Centre to the project site, complete all the preparatory work. Recently, the project has commenced smoothly!

The Fujian provincial medical team is responsible for performing cataract surgeries in the Senegal project. GX would like to thank the medical team for their assistance and contribution. It is expected that around 3000 cataract patients from the region will receive surgery over the next two years, helping them regain their sight.
