Betty’s Story

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.
