St John USA Members have purchased a new 4x4 vehicle for the Hospital’s mobile outreach teams in the West Bank of Palestine. The new vehicle is already allowing the mobile teams to reach even more remote areas and provide life saving and restoring eye care to impoverished Palestinian communities.Picture – St John Members with outreach vehicle.
In 2015, St John USA sent over $2 million to the St John of Jerusalem Eye Hospital group projects in Jerusalem and Palestine; which directly contributed to over 123,000 patients being treated, over 5,000 life changing operations performed and thousands of lives being impacted as a result. Thank you to St John USA for their generous support. Photo caption – Young patients at our Jerusalem Eye Hopsital.
