Kremer Cares Medical Mission Trip

Dr. George Pronesti, Medical Director of Kremer Eye Center, is leading a group of doctors on a mission trip to Ait Bogumez - a tiny, remote region in the mountains of Morocco with little access to healthcare. 

Along with Dr. Pronesti, Dr. Ayan Chatterjee, Dr. Neil Farbman and Dr. Jurij R. Bilyk  will provide cataract and glaucoma surgery to individuals in need. While they are there, our doctors will be teaching the doctors there how to do corneal transplants. There will also be doctors providing plastic/facial surgery, dentistry and Internal Medicine.

Due to the remote location of Ait Bogumez within Morocco, there are neither facilities with the equipment and instruments needed to perform these surgeries nor personnel such as nurses and techs to assist in the surgeries.

As you can imagine, the cost will be daunting, therefore we are asking for donations to help cover the costs which could easily exceed $30,000. The doctors’ time and travel are graciously being donated. All donations we collect go towards supplies and equipment needed to preform the surgeries. Donations of any amount would be greatly appreciated and would help us to offer care where none has been given before. Every dollar will go directly toward this effort and we will document the entire process so our donors can witness our mutual accomplishments. After the trip, some of the equipment will be donated to try and start a site for ongoing eye care.

The trip is planned for May of 2022.
