Mission Details : Medical Ministry International will facilitate a two-week vision project in Mon, Nagaland, India from November 2-16, 2019. Dr. Sharon Konyak and Dr. Chingkup Konyak both completed the Ophthalmology Residency Training program at the Elias Santana Hospital in Dominican Republic. Following their graduation, they returned to their home country, India, to serve their people. Both Sharon and Chingkup work at the Mercy Eye Center in Tuensang, Nagaland, and are Project Directors for the Medical Ministry International teams that volunteer on projects there. Nagaland is a state in the far north-eastern part of India. The state capital is Kohima and the largest city is Dimapur. Agriculture is the most important economic activity in Nagaland, so for many people it is their livelihood. Christianity is the predominant religion of Nagaland and it is known as a predominantly Baptist state. English is the official language. The terrain is mountainous: 4500 feet above sea level. This project needs a comprehensive vision care team including Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, Opticians, Nurses, Technicians, and Non-Medical Support Team Members. Vision care projects are focused in urban areas, and include opportunities for local medical personnel to receive training. These large projects typically see a high volume of patients looking for all types of services, including cataract surgeries. The MMI team will provide screening for pathology, surgical candidates, and refractive error. The optical component will dispense Rx and reading glasses to patients. The team will provide the patients with an opportunity to have access to surgery in their own community by contributing a small but impactful amount towards their procedure. Teams work Monday-Friday with the middle weekend off for relaxation. Participants make a Project Donation which covers all in-country expenses, accommodations, meals, travel insurance, and malpractice insurance. Air fare is extra. This is an excellent opportunity to serve the people of India!
