SCNs at Pabalelong Hospice, Metsimotlhabe, Botswana, organized an eye screening camp at the Hospice with the help of Lion’s Club, Botswana. The camp started with prayer and a ritual of lighting a lamp symbolizing Christ as the light. 152 middle aged and elderly people from the nearby villages were screed for their eye sight. Lions club Botswana donated reading glasses to 115 of them and referred others to the Government facilities, those with cataract and other vision problems. SCNs were very grateful to Lion’s Club Botswana for their cooperation and generosity in conducting this camp especially donating the reading glasses. Many of these people would not have afforded to buy reading glasses as they are very expensive.
