Africa Eye Foundation establishes the Magrabi ICO Cameroon Eye Institute
The International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO), The Al Noor – Magrabi Foundation, a non-profit foundation organized in Egypt, and the That Every Life May Count (French language: Afin Que Chaque Vie Compte) Foundation, a non-profit foundation organized in Switzerland have come come together, to establish the Africa Eye Foundation. The Magrabi ICO Cameroon Eye Institute in Yaounde, Cameroon, is the first project of the Africa Eye Foundation.
The Mission of the Eye Institute is to train ophthalmologists and staff in Cameroon and French-Speaking Central West Africa to become the next generation of leaders and to provide high quality eye care services with subspecialties (currently unavailable in Central Africa) and outreach programs, minimizing the need to send patients abroad.
Dr Akef El-Maghraby, ICO’s Vice President and a principal donor, presented the following overview of the Magrabi ICO Cameroon Eye Institute.
The aim of this blog is to keep you updated on progress on the implementation of the Magrabi ICO Cameroon Eye Institute.
