Kevin had this to say about the experience, “Ninety four people walked away from the make-shift Jiri clinic with restored vision. Arriving to the project blind or with only slight light sensitivity all then embarked their homeward journeys with vision sufficient for a driver's license. Miraculous was the only way to describe the scene and sentiment; bandage removal shone fresh colour and hope into many lives. One older Gentleman declared 'God has arrived'. Cliché I know but seeing the post -op patients granted me a refreshed sense of humanity and humility. My slight role rendered such positive feeling.
Also on this expedition there was a fully equipped media team from Serac Adventure Films and Outside magazine.
