Taiwanese Medical Team helps Eye Patients in PNG

A MEDICAL team from Taiwan is at Lae’s Angau Memorial Hospital to treat people with problems affecting their eye-sight and bones. 
The team includes two eye doctors, an optometrist, an administrator and US$15,000 (K39,087) from the Taiwan government for medical supplies and crystal lenses for the ophthalmology department. It comes with 300 pairs of spectacles for presbyopia patients, 20 pairs for cataract patients and medicine for the orthopaedic department.
Taiwan Trade Mission representative Daniel Chun-pu Hu donated a tonne of rice to the hospital in response to a state of emergency called by Prime Minister Peter O’Neill recently.
“To extend the goodwill of the Taiwanese people, the Changhua Christian Hospital has fulfilled its mission to form a partnership with Angau hospital.”
