Eye mission with Barraquer FDN

We got many requests from medical professionals and foundations that wanted to volunteer in Africa offering their knowledge and help free of charge, for only a simple thank-you.  They felt the vocation to help people in need. Gradually we have built a bridge from Barcelona to Kenya, between professionals in healthcare and sick people who cannot afford treatment.
