The Callan Services staff members, who specialise in Ear and Eye work, also conducted free eye screening in remote communities throughout the trek. In total, 24 individuals were screened, with a number of community members being diagnosed with a vision impairment and new glasses being issued, as well as providing referrals for cataract removal to others. Betty* who had not been able to see for many years, cried tears of joy upon receiving her glasses – now being able to see her grandchildren for the first time. The trekkers had brought to her the happiest moment of her life – she now saw everything as clearly as her childhood days.
