CAMEROON: Afrter the floating hospital, here comes the flying hospital.

The International NGO Orbis has started a second medical mission in Cameroon since the first one in 2013, as its “Flying Eye Hospital” Landed in Yaoundé Yesterday.

Many Cameroonians with eye complication will not need to travel for long distances and spend gorgeous sums of money to have their eyes treated as the flying aircraft is here to take care of some 235 eye case free of charge.

The orbis Flying Hospital landed in the Yaoundé Nsimalen international airport yesterday Thursday 5th October 2017 in corroboration with the announcement made by the Public Health Minister Andre Mama Fuda two days earlier. The hospital aircraft will treat some 235 eye cases and train some medical personnel in Cameroon before the end of its mission.

The international NGO Orbis does not only treat rare ophthalmological infections but it is also a school for training eye specialist. The Orbis Flying Eye Hospital is unlike any plane you’ve seen before. A state-of-the-art teaching facility complete with operating room, classroom and recovery room – this amazing aircraft has been an example of the marriage between medicine and aviation since 1982.

The project orbis was longed in 1973by Boston base ophthalmologist Dr David Paton. He was motivated by the fact that 80% of the world’s visual impediments could be treated or prevented. So Dr Paton recruited a small group of philanthropist and aviators to kick start his bold project.
