Peru
With a rapidly aging population and cataract being the lead cause of blindness, Peru has great need for high quality eye care. With that in mind, Seva’s Global Sight Initiative began a partnership with Divino Nino Jesus (DNJ) in 2011. DNJ is an eye hospital based in Lima that has been working closely with GSI’s “mentor institution” Visualiza (Guatemala). With assistance from Seva, clinical and administrative staff of Visualiza have been working with DNJ to expand their hospital’s services. Over the past five years, DNJ has grown and flourished- now they are performing almost twice as many high-quality services as they were at the beginning of the Seva-forged partnership.
