On the 1st October, Compassionate Hands volunteer Ko Naing Naing Tun went to Bogalay to help with the eye operations for 18 citizens of Pat Le and surrounding villages (see post below). After meeting with the eye specialist, 5 of them received cataract eye operations, which were all successful. They have already begun to regain their eyesight. 8 people will get glasses of which one is a 9-year old boy. 2 people received minor eye operations. Some others will need a second cartaract operation.
