Dr. Khumbo Kalua is one of these only 14 ophthalmologists in Malawi, and he founded the Blantyre Institute for Community Outreach (BICO) to support rural residents in Malawi who are suffering from difficulty in access to eyecare.
Dr. Kalua and BICO have been working with various institutions around the world to contribute to the development of eye care and education of ophthalmologists in Malawi.
OUI Inc. has been working with BICO since November 2019 to conduct pilot tests of SEC in rural clinics in Malawi and invited Dr. Khumbo Kalua to Tokyo for a joint conference in February 2020. MEGANE TOP also participated in the conference and has been discussing with OUI Inc. about joint support for eyecare.
Based on the above, OUI Inc. and MEGANE TOP jointly donated eyeglass frames and lenses to BICO. The donated items arrived in the Republic of Malawi in April and May, and the local patients are very pleased with them.
