PROJECT HISTORY

In 2010, 2017 and February or 2020, Human Outreach Project teamed up with the University of Utah’s Moran Eye Center (a partnership that started in remote regions of the Himalayas, back during HOP’s second year of operations!) and medical facilities in Tanzania to bring vision back to over 1,000 people. With World Wide Trekking and HOP managing the logistics, doctors carried out over 400 cataract surgeries in Dodoma, Tanzania in 2010, another 500 surgeries in 2017, and in 2020 approximately 50 cataract surgeries were performed a day, on adults and children, for an entire week.
