Welcome to MSOM Nepal

Working alongside with Dr Ben Limbu and his team, we held ocular workshops at Shankarapura Polyclinic and the following day at Buddha Academy, Bhakundebesi. Over the course of the two days, we were able to screen over 200 individuals and:

 

  • distributed over 80 safety glasses to workers at risk of ocular trauma

  • provided free eye screening programmes

  • issued ocular medications 

  • raised awareness of common eye diseases to many locals.  

 

From the two workshops that MSOM were able to fund,  1 DCR (Dacryocystorhinostomy) patient + 15 Cataract patients were identified; and via Working Vision, they will be receiving these surgeries for free!

Buddha Academy

On the second camp, we met a greater number of patients needing our help.  It was a very busy day, but with the help of Working Vision and Lion's club Sinchit , we worked hard to see it to the end. 

Towards the end of the day, when it was time for us to pack, even though we had already seen over 200 patients, more and more villagers were still coming.  When we asked the locals why they were coming so late, they told us that these villagers had to trek on foot over hills to reach us. 

To us, this was an ocular workshop that could happen again, but to those patients, it was the only free medical support they could receive not having to worry about money.

Muskan Sewa Orphanage

On 17th March 2018, MSOM was able to help fund “Retinoblastoma(Childhood Eye Cancer) and Amblyopia awareness + free eye screening program”, which were conducted by Dr Ben Limbu and Working Vision. 

 

Both Retinoblastoma and Amblyopia are diseases that usually go unnoticed, especially when parents and children are unaware of it.  If left untreated, there is a high risk of leading to permanent visual impairment, and even blindness. 

 

By raising awareness through outreach programmes such as these, we can help prevent these simple diseases happening to them and their family.

MSOM Volunteers had the opportunity to visit Muskan Sewa orphanage again where they had the chance to perceive the humanitarian actions of one independent woman and how one person can better the lives of so many young talented children. MSOM was able to help in the funding of building a new infrastructure for the children

Kavrepalanchok

On the 11th of August 2018, we held a general medical screening camp, where diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure were prevalent simply due to lack of health education.

 

By raising awareness on the importance of a balanced diet, regular exercise and aseptic practice we hope to have a long term positive impact on their health. It was an eye-opener to observe how much simple health care activities were neglected in rural areas.   

Hetauda

On the 18th of August 2018, MSOM volunteers were able to help out at the Hetauda Medical Camp.

 

The day began with a general check up of the community members followed by a visual acuity testing. They noticed that a lot of the elderly population suffered from ocular abnormalities such as cataracts, dermoid cysts and nasolacrimal duct obstructions but had very little access or knowledge about treatment options. They were surprised to hear that a simple procedure could remove discomfort and return their sight in a lot of the cases.

 

It was extremely satisfying to deliver news about possible treatment/surgical referral and see a smile on their faces.

"We saw how disciplined, smart, well-mannered the children were in a loving environment. Without the additional help from anyone, “mamu” cooks, cleans and nurtures her children, teaching them essential values and responsibilities of life. Not only does “mamu” push them academically, she also encourages growth in other aspects such as their individual talents."

MSOM believes modern medicine is prevention and it’s with great honour that we have continued to work with Dr Ben Limbu in preventing blindness related to ocular trauma.

On the 8th of February 2019, Dr Limbu and Working Vision delivered an eye safety awareness presentation and a screening programme; where they were able to perform 215 free eye examinations. As a result more than 50 free safety glasses and medications were distributed.
