For the last two months, a team representing Social Enterprise @ Goizueta has been working with the ECHO Foundation on a plan to purchase and place approximately $180,000 worth of new equipment in the San Pedro Sula Lions’ Eye Hospital Fraternidad. This allows the hospital’s dedicated doctors and medical staff to increase the number of cataract surgeries performed each year to more than 1,500 patients. The team plans to release more information, including a quarterly crowd-funding campaign.
