Muallim In Charge, Ahlul Bayt Centre, Shimoni, Ust. Khalid Issa

“I am one of the attendants of the recent eye camp organized by BMMK at Ahlul Kisaa Centre, Kichakamkwaju.   Many people came for treatment; men and women, children and students from various schools. Some of the patients were taken for surgery to Kwale Eye Centre, Magandia. The residents of this area are very happy for this service

I request if the mission can expand the scope from eye treatment to treatment of other diseases affecting the people of this area.”
