To keep patients and staff safe at this time, Kwale Eye Centre is operating reduced hours. Therefore please contact the Eye Centre before travelling there. Below is a message from Kwale Eye Centre:
Covid 19 is spread by the respiratory route (breathing it in). This means that close contact (within 2 metres) with a person who may be carrying the virus (and may not know it because they are still well) is potentially dangerous to both you and your loved ones. This type of contact needs to be avoided for a few weeks if possible. Therefore, to try to lessen the spread of this potentially deadly disease, the eye centre is open for emergencies only. Please delay your spectacle check or routine eye appointment while this pandemic is being addressed. If you need routine eye drops and usually obtain them from the Eye Centre these are still available from the Eye Centre between 9am and 12 midday Monday to Friday. if you cannot get to the eye centre please get in touch on the e mail below If you need advice about your eye condition please use firstname.lastname@example.org giving as much information about your condition as you can. Thank you for helping us to reduce the number of people who catch this disease Kwale Eye Centre
Fundraising in a pandemic
A supporter of ours, Liz O'Donnell, has been busy making face masks for her friends and family during lockdown. Recipients of the masks gave charitable donations by way of thank you, and alongside additional donations from her generous friends and family, Liz has raised over £100 for Eyes For East Africa! Thank you to Liz, and to all who donated. The masks look fantastic!
