Cuando se quiere hacer algo bueno por los demás, los frutos se multiplican muy bién FEDEX, usaré en adelante tus servicios sólo por esto
So too in medicine. This is a great project that has been advancing eye care for a generation. While a few patients receive direct care, the true benefit is the "training" of providers within the target populations and especially the adaption of techniques to permit widespread local use.
I have taught and operated on four continents. Often we do sophisticated surgery not available locally, but the most benefit to the population is almost always the training imparted to nationals to do the simplest of things well. A couple of hundred kids benefit from direct efforts but the lives of thousands can be improved by teaching the simple stuff.
FedEx are to be congratulated and encouraged for direct action, bypassing corruption and bureaucracy within target populations.
