It was five years ago this week that the SKYGEN International Foundation team arrived in Arusha, Tanzania to launch the first of its many mobile vision clinics.
A pair of polarized sunglasses is as important as sunscreen when it comes to protecting yourself from the sun’s ultraviolet rays (UV). Now, more people in Tanzania will be able to slip on some shades with help from the SKYGEN International Foundation.
With its local staff in place and the mobile clinic up and running, the Foundation is tackling the oral health crisis.
Three years ago, the SKYGEN International Foundation team traveled to Tanzania to host our first vision clinic and begin the groundwork for our project to provide eye care throughout the underserved parts of Tanzania. Since that first visit, we have provided over 180,000 locals with vision tests and provided over 35,000 pairs of free eye glasses!
