    Korean doctors give free eye treatment in Gutu


    - A group of 18 opticians including students from South Korea were at Gutu Mission Hospital in Gutu last week where they gave free medical service to about 500 people with eye problems.
    The three-day programme was facilitated by Professor Rangarirai Masanganise, an opthalmologist (Vision and eye science) at the University of Zimbabwe. The programme ran from July 19-20, 2016. Chief Gutu confirmed the programme.
    "We had 18 doctors from South Korea who came in to help people with eye problems. The treatment was granted for free to everyone who required it.
    "The programme ran for three days, from 19-21 July," said Edmund Masanganise who is Chief Gutu.
    Other patients were referred to buy prescription or spectacles from Morgenster Hospital.
    Chief Gutu and other community members voluntarily mobilised resources and food for patients.
    "The community and I, also helped the patients by bringing food for them to eat through the night as they waited for treatment," said Chief Gutu. It is estimated that about 500 patients turned up for treatment and some came from as far as Bulawayo, Gokwe and Kwekwe.
