New cataract surgeon!

Ephraim Kambewa, Cataract Surgeon

One of the greatest aspects of working here at Nkhoma is the team at the Eye Hospital. I have the pleasure of working with a team of nearly 40 dedicated nurses, patient attendants, drivers, administrative staff; and one clinical officer, Mr Ephraim Kambewa.

I mention Mr Kambewa especially, as he has returned after 18 months training in Tanzania last year, and has graduated now as a qualified Senior ophthalmic clinical officer Cataract Surgeon! It was thanks to cbm that his training was possible.

Mr Kambewa has worked at Nkhoma for 7 years, and has a wife and 3 children.

Since starting training, and being back at Nkhoma he has completed over 800 cataract operations and is an excellent surgeon. He is a fantastic asset to Nkhoma Eye Hospital, and will be a crucial part of its sustainability.

Dave McComiskey, cbm Regional Director, awarded Mr Kambewa a certificate of congratulations for his acheivement, and we had a colourful presentation ceremony yesterday at Nkhoma.
