The association “L’impegno” based in Umbria organized for the months of October and November a medical mission in Burkina Faso.
Planned to go two eye surgeons of the hospital in Gubbio-Gualdo Tadino, a nurse hospital in Città di Castello, two optical technicians from Gubbio.

The project involves the creation in Nanoroo at the hospital, run by fathers Camillians, a center for eye surgery and an optical lab.

For this project, challenging both from the point of view of organization and economy, the association has benefited from the input of specialized companies, private citizens, traders in the industry.

In this way, they succeeded in Burkina to send a large amount of medical supplies for interventions in ophthalmology and for the realization of demonstrations with corrective lenses.
