At Seva Canada's 2020 Annual General Meeting, Peter Kileo from our partner in Africa, the Kilimanjaro Centre for Community Ophthalmology (KCCO), presented the strategy to reach people in remote communities with eye care by working with existing women microfinance groups.
This pre-recorded version of his presentation was made just in case there was a poor internet connection in Tanzania affecting his live presentation. Luckily it also provides us with a way of sharing his presentation with those who couldn't join us to hear it live via Zoom!
