Jersey Funded Project Brings Vital Eye Care to Thousands in the Middle East
Jersey Overseas Aid and St John Ambulance Jersey are to welcome a Jersey-sponsored nurse working for the Jerusalem Eye Hospital Group for a four day visit. Established in 1882, the Group is the only charitable provider of expert eye care in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem (approximately 4.6million inhabitants) and through this partnership a full-time nurse, Muyassar Ghanem, is sponsored to contribute towards the vital care needed.
The visit is an opportunity for some Islanders to hear about the life-changing work being by Jersey charities working abroad and how JOA supports them.
