Partners in sight saving

DHL Express and IAG Cargo cooperated to move 1,900 kilos of surgical eye material to Lodwar Hospital in Turkana, north Kenya in April. The material will help with operations for treating diseases like cataracts and trachoma and help prevent unnecessary blindness. Dr Ciancas, ophthalmology team member of the unit said it was the fourth consecutive year that DHL Express and IAG Cargo have collaborated to move the sensitive materials that require special transfer conditions. Thanks to this co-operation, in 2012 doctors on site in Turkana were able to provide medical care to over 7,300 people and carry out 630 operations on these patients, he said.
