Mission Details : MMI will faciltate a two week vision project in Barrancas, Guajira, Colombia from January 12-26, 2019. Options available for one or two weeks commitment. MMI first travelled to Colombia in 2004, and today project teams aim to provide specialized vision services along with basic primary care and dental care. The team will be staffed with North American volunteers and involve local staff when possible. This project needs a comprehensive vision care team including Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, Opticians, Nurses, Technicians, and Non-Medical Support Team Members. Vision care projects are focused in urban areas, and include opportunities for local medical personnel to receive training. These large projects typically see a high volume of patients looking for all types of services, including cataract surgeries. The MMI team will provide screening for pathology, surgical candidates, and refractive error. The optical component will dispense Rx and reading glasses to patients. Surgeries will take place at a local hospital and the optical clinic will be set up at a local school. The goal is to see over 4,000 people during the two-week project. Teams work Monday-Friday with the middle weekend off for relaxation. Participants make a Project Donation which covers all in-country expenses, accommodations, meals, travel insurance, and malpractice insurance. Air fare is extra. This is an excellent opportunity to serve the people of Colombia! For further information, please visit or contact the Project Team at This email address is being protected from spambots.
