Dr. Montecillo to visit Kenya on mission trip
We are pleased to let you know that Dr. Montecillo and her family will be traveling to Kenya with The Orphan Outreach organization this summer. The children she will be visiting are dealing with the most profound challenges. Many of them have lost their parents and families due to HIV and other life-threatening illnesses. Basic health and vision services are scarce in this region and the children suffer the most.
Dr. Montecillo, her family, and the Orphan Outreach organization will working with orphanages at Patmos and Bungoma. Parts of the team will be providing medical care, others will be building a medical clinic in Bungoma, while yet others will provide teaching and training and home visits for families with serious illnesses. Dr. M personally plans to provide eye care to over 100 children in Patmos and 300 children in Bungoma. She is ready and willing but needs help from volunteers and donations.
If you would like to help, we are looking contributions of used children’s eyewear. Take a look around your home and bring your glasses into the clinic before June 15th. No glasses? No problem. There is also a gofundme campaign to help them purchase eyeglasses, equipment, medication, as well as shipping and unexpected expenses.
