The oft-postponed operations day finally took place at the Bashir hospital in the Mayo suburb of Khartoum in mid-November. 355 patients were seen of whom 300 received medicines, mostly eye-drops and vitamins. 48 operations were recommended and carried out, of which 29 were for cataracts and the remainder miscellaneous surgeries. The follow-up day to review the patients who underwent the operations will be on 13 December.
