The end of the year

Categories: Malawi

Sunset over Lake Malawi

I feel, as I’m sure many of us do just before the end of the year, a bit tired and exhausted! I am looking forward to spending time with my fiance, Jenn and our families. After a few days of rest and relaxation with those dearest to me, I can begin to join in the global festive cheer and goodwill. I am incredibly thankful for what we have, and what we can do.

I knew this year was going to be filled with milestones! Getting engaged, Nkhoma Eye Hospital passing the 25,000 cataract surgeries mark (since the year 2000), and completing the full second year of my time in Malawi. It has been a great year of teamwork with over 5,000 operations performed in rural Nkhoma Eye Hospital! The staff there are now taking a well deserved break with their families for the next few weeks!
