Paediatric Cataract Surgery, Gondar University Hospital

The Foundation has funded a trip organised by our Special Advisor, Dr Geoffrey Woodruff, to the Gondar University Hospital, with the objectives of undertaking paediatric cataract surgery, and teaching paediatric opthalmology to the trainee Opthalmologists.


Dr Woodruff worked with Dr Mulusew Asferaw, a Consultant paediatric Opthalmologist at WGGA Eye Centre Addis Ababa to see many children in clinics at Gondar University Eye Clinic, followed by seven cataract operations on children.  For comparison, a large British teaching hospital would perform this number of operations over a six month period!
