This year will be the Beeve Foundation’s 25th eye surgery mission in Fiji. We will be at the Nadi Hospital for the third year in a row.

With our partnership with the Fijian Ministry of Health, patients have and continue to be pre-screen and scheduled for eye surgery at the Lautoka Hospital. There are currently several hundred patients that have already been pre-screened and will require surgery.

This year’s team doctors will  be:

  • Dr. Jerold Beeve
  • Dr. Scott Beeve
  • Dr. Mario Meallet
  • Dr. Rey Pangilinan
  • Dr. Ervin Fang
  • Dr. Anis Yusuf

 

Our team will be 14 in total, including 4 registered nurses, 2 Ophthalmology techs, and 2 Fijian coordinators.

Additionally, eye exams will be held at the Radisson Hotel on September 11th.

On September 12-17 , Jerold and Dorothy Beeve and Kate Sauer will travel to Turtle Island Resort to provide eye exams, dispense eye glasses and perform Yag Laser surgery for former patients. For 13 years, the Beeve Foundation held their eye surgery missions at the Turtle Island Resort.

Over the years, the Beeve Foundation has held their eye surgery missions at these locations:

  • 13 years at the Turtle Island in the Yasawas
  • 6 years at Savusavu Hospital on Vanua Levu
  • 3 years at Natuvu Mission on Vanaua Levu
  • 3(including 2016) years at Nadi Hospital on Viti Levu

 

We are grateful to have been able to perform over the last 24 years:

  • 28,113 eye exams
  • 26,882 pairs of glasses dispensed
  • 2,643 surgeries

Thank you for all your support!
