From November 8 to 21, 2008 Third World Eye Care Society (TWECS), in cooperation with the city government of Olongapo, led by Mayor James ‘Bong’ Gordon Jr. will be giving free eye consultation, operation and eyeglasses.

TWECS has a target of four hundred to five hundred (400-500) patients per day.

According to their website, “TWECS is a 100% volunteer registered Canadian charity that began in 1995 with the kind donation of $100 to our founder Dr. Marina Roma-March by the Mount Pleasant Lions Club of Vancouver, Canada for an eye project in Tecoman, Mexico. The Club continues today to be a major booster of the Society, raising funds for optical equipment and warehouse supplies.”

TWECS has currently helped over 30, 000 people from Third World countries in their eye care concerns. TWECS is based in Canada and each team is made up of ten to fifteen (10-15) members of eye surgeons, eye doctors, opticians and lay volunteers who are more than willing to help.

Local ophthalmologists will also augment the foreign doctors so that more people can avail of their services.

For more information, visit the City Health Office at the City Hall Complex.
