A direct appeal resulted in the Order of St George providing an ophthalmoscope for the Eye Clinic in Baghdad.

This piece of equipment is critical for early Ophthalmic Intervention and will help identify and deliver valuable Ophthalmic Services to those with the greatest need.

We are committed to continuing this support into the future and we will look to further developing this important humanitarian project.

We extend heartfelt thanks to Dr Richard Reyes MBBS MS FRCSE FRCS for his unfaltering assistance in obtaining this equipment. It was the Grand Prior’s pleasure to prefer an Honorary Companionship of the Order to Dr Reyes at the 2013 Annual Investiture at Rochester.
