Next week, a group of eye doctors from the US will be running an eye health campaign in nearby Perquín. A couple of the doctors came early, and they have been going to the surrounding towns holding preliminary exams and giving people tickets. This gets the word out ahead of time, and helps assure that people can be attended more quickly. The project was started by a group of eye doctors from a church in the mid-west who eventually enlisted the help of many of their friends and associates. Their contact in El Salvador is Sister Anne, an Irish nun who lives in Melinda’s town.

Today, two of the doctors came to Torola, along with two Irish guys who are working on a building project in Arambala. They saw about 15 or 20 people, giving out some reading glasses, and making prescriptions for when the rest of the doctors come next week. They also left me with about 30 tickets to hand out during the week. On Monday and Tuesday I will be with them, translating and helping to organize the crowds.
