Subject: Hope UMC Panama mission trip
Our mission trip to Panama was a great success. The vision clinic saw 222 clients. We dispensed 34 prescription glasses, over 150 reading glasses, hundreds of Bibles, and hundreds of caps. The clients we saw appeared to have better eye quality than the people we were use to in Honduras. We saw fewer cataracts and less eye damage which may be a result of their cooking facilities tending to be more ventilated. Additionally, we had designed and tested a new stove as Panamanians tend to cook in rounded pots as opposed to a flat griddle as in Honduras. This new design appears to be working as other mission groups are already requesting information on the design.
Your equipment worked perfectly and several new mission members became
adept at measuring the clients' eyes.
Thank you for the use of your equipment,
Hope United Methodist Church
