BelizeKids.org was so proud to donate a 2nd Vision Screening Device to San Pedro’s Lions Club last week. The organization donated the first Plus Optix machine in July of this year.
Before these donations, two similar machines were shared between the various Lions’ Clubs of Belize and used to identify vision issues for all school children in the country of Belize.
Now, our San Pedro Lions’ Club’s Eye Screening Mission, spearheaded by Ms. Jan Brown, are committed to testing all children in Ambergris Caye, Caye Caulker AND the Corozal district in the school year 2016-2017. They now own two of their own testing devices – both some of the most modern machines available for this purpose.
BelizeKids.org remains true to our mission – to help the children of Ambergris Caye as needed with our main focus on education and healthcare.
We are now looking at other ways to diagnose and correct those children with vision issues on the caye. Stay tuned.
