In September 2013 our first South American training course took place in Santa Cruz/Bolivia. About half of the Bolivian population lives in the countryside and thus too far away from any ophthalmologic care. The training was conducted by Jakob Schillinger and Narei Rassuli from our partner organization Enactus Munich.
The local organization of the course was taken care of by Max Steiner from Switzerland, who has been living in Bolivia for many years and is very much engaged in numerous social projects. Big thank you to Max for all the work and effort!
