Finally the big day has arrived. After many discussions and lots and lots of paper work the container to Madagascar has been loaded today and will be shipped this week. Thank you to everyone for your generous donations! We will keep you posted when it arrives safely in Fort Dauphin.
Our new team-member at La Vision: ophtalmologist Dr. Lara at work:
Thanks to the donations collected at this year’s Christmas Markets we were able to organize a Christmas Celebration in Fort Dauphin for all the people in need that receive help from La Vision. Everyone helped with the preparations and had a wonderful time. We thank you all for your support as without it all this would not have been possible. La Vision wishes you a very happy and healthy new year!

This year Quentin’s trip to Madagscar took place in April. He checked on all our projects in Fort Dauphin, distributed food, spent some time with our kids at the orphanage and lots more. Check out the pictures from his experiences:
Still day 9 of our Madagascar trip:
In the afternoon we went to our ophtalmology clinic’s site, where we met up with Dr. Parfait. He gave us an insight into his work with the patients he treats free of charge.
Here some impresions of our eye-clinic:
Day 9 of our Madagascar trip:
This afternoon we could return the repaired wheelchairs to their grateful owners. Thanks to our local team’s great work the wheelchairs look like they were new and work again.
Here are some pictures of the “new” refurbished old wheelchairs:
Still day 6 of our Madagascar trip:
In the afternoon we welcomed a group of handicapped people on our clinic’s site. Each one tried out different walking aids or wheelchairs and were then given the one that they felt most comfortable with.
Some of them came with wheelchairs that were broken but could be repaired. So we kept them to repair and can hopefully return them soon as good as new.
Here photos of today’s distribution:
