Here is the testimonial from the team leader:
Thank you so much for your help and support as we prepared to add an optical segment to our annual medical mission in Mindo, Ecuador. This was the 7th medical mission undertaken by our foundation, Mindo Futures, Inc.
In past missions, we attempted to fulfill our patients’ needs for eyeglasses by taking hundreds of pairs with us, setting them on a table and allowing each individual to try them on until they found a pair that helped. That was a tremendous waste of time and resources. We quickly realized that we needed to find a better solution.
Fortunately, a search on the internet connected us with your amazing foundation. We were astonished by how perfectly your group meshed with ours and by how well you were able to help fulfill our requirements. On top of that, the level of education, organization and support your team offered to ours was fantastic! We were amazed by your quick response at every step along the way, including accepting calls from Ecuador.
Ninety four doctors, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, psychologists and non-medical volunteers traveled with us on this year’s trip. Everyone was amazed by the demand we had for eyeglasses and by the unbelievable clinic we were able to set up, all thanks to you and your Ministry.
Attached are photos of our clinic that we wanted to share with you. Thanks to your equipment, support and training we were able to provide our patients with a vastly improved method of matching prescription and reading eyeglasses to their individual needs!
We look forward to working with you again next year!
May God Bless You and all those working in your Ministry!
