There is a huge need of eyecare services around the world. Eye Care Group has partnered with KIDS in Uganda, a Christian outreach organization that supports orphans in Uganda.
Through very generous donations of equipment and finances we have been able to build a full service vision clinic in Koboko Uganda! This clinic provides onsite eye exams and glasses fabrication to the local community via short term mission trips and eye care professionals with a heart to serve. The primary focus is to make sure that orphans have their eye care and glasses needs met, so they can continue their education. Additionally, services will be provided to the community at large as there are no ophthalmic services currently available.
If you are interested in learning more about KIDS in Uganda or how you might be able to help or participate, please don’t hesitate to ask one of our doctors. Additionally, you can find out more information via the links below.

July 2019 Update
Our final days in Koboko were full of eye exams on orphan kids, the Hopeland staff and a group of government officials and pastors. They were all so appreciative and thankful for our time there and while we are all sad to be leaving, we are excited for the next few days going to the high school and rescue units. Thank you again for all your prayer and support, this is a special place. Stay tuned for Dr. Pelson's own update in the weeks ahead!
