THE next Kids Insight programme is scheduled for January 2020 and parents, guardians and caregivers are being informed by the Saint Lucia Blind Welfare Association (SLBWA) that they can come forward to register their children for Kids Insight 2020 at the offices of the SLBWA in San Souci, Castries.
Kids Insight, a joint project of the Saint Lucia Blind Welfare Association (SLBWA), the Lions Clubs of St Lucia, and West Virginia University (WVU) Eye Institute, addresses the vision needs of children in St Lucia with blinding eye conditions. Kids Insight offers a comprehensive approach to pediatric eye problems, including surgical, medical, educational, and rehabilitation needs.
Every year since 2003, a committed team of Ophthalmic Specialists from West Virginia, USA has volunteered their time and expertise to help children in Saint Lucia. The work completed during their visit is the result of year-long planning, organization and hard work from St Lucia and the West Virginia Eye Institute.
Parents, guardians and caregivers can visit or call the SLBWA for more information on the Kids Insight programme.
