Key-Whitman Doctors Head to Belize on Medical Mission Trip

Posted By Key-Whitman Eye Center || 13-Jan-2014

BelizesmallIn February, a team of six individuals led by Key-Whitman doctors Faisal Haq and Kimberly Warren will travel on a medical mission trip to Belize City, Belize. The team will spend one week in the country performing eye surgery for patients in need.

This trip will be a first for both Dr. Haq and Dr. Warren, who have performed more than 12,000 surgeries combined in the United States. They are looking forward to taking their expertise to Belize, where few people have access to eye care and surgery. Access to quality eye care is limited in that country due to a severe shortage of ophthalmologists. The Key-Whitman surgical team hopes to ease the strain by providing cataract surgery to as many patients as possible.

"Changing lives is our mission at Key-Whitman. Unfortunately, not everyone in the world has access to the same standard of care," says Dr. Haq. "We are looking forward to spending time in Belize, providing patients there with necessary eye surgeries that will dramatically improve their quality of life."

The doctors will cover their own travel and accommodations, and generous donors have stepped up to help cover some of the expenses associated with the surgeries, but additional funds must be raised to pay for necessary surgical supplies, equipment and medications.

You can help us change the lives of people in Belize by purchasing a chocolate bar from Key-Whitman. Candy is being sold at the front desk of both the Plano and Dallas Key-Whitman offices. All proceeds from the sale of “The World’s Finest Chocolate” will go toward expenses for the medical mission trip in February.

Thank you for your generosity and for helping our team give the gift of vision to some of the people in need in Belize.
