Samson Keitany is Head of the Eye Department at Huruma Eye Unit, our partner in Uasin Gishu County, Kenya.

“2021 was a blessed year for us. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, our work in serving the community continued from the support we received from Operation Eyesight,” Samson says.

Samson Keitany, Head of the Huruma Eye Unit in Uasin Gishu County, Kenya, says that despite the challenges that came with 2021, it’s the impact that we have in the lives of patients that makes our work worthwhile.

“We started the year with school screening that saw an influx of workload at the eye unit. Our patients had their eyesight restored courtesy of consumables and spectacles we received from Operation Eyesight. When our patients are happy, we are also happy.”
