Mobile eye surgery clinic to help reduce blindness in Vanuatu

From , 6:03 am on 10 February 2017

A medical ship that's just been installed with an eye surgery clinic will soon be bound for Vanuatu.

Rotary Clubs from several countries have raised $US87,000 for the optical equipment on the MV Pacific Hope, which has already been providing dental surgery in the region.  

It's one of four vessels operated by Marine Reach, a New Zealand based faith charity.

Jo O'Brien spoke to its founder David Cowie about the new clinic.
