More than 75% of our Christian Arab families do not have healthcare coverage. As part of our yearly Medical Outreach Initiative, we fly in eye specialists and dentists from the United States to help our elderly with cataract surgeries, other eye ailments and dental work. In 2011, we helped over 3,000 people.
Our goal is to provide this service every quarter instead of every year. And bring in a variety of medical specialists to address other health concerns that are prevalent in our community.
