Free Cataract Surgery in Cooperation with ERHA
As a form of public care, the Directorate General of Taxes in cooperation with ERHA, a brand of Arya Noble, held free cataract surgeries on 14-28 May 2016.
On 14 May 2016 they held a screening for about 650 people. After the screening, on 21 May 2016, 288 people received cataract surgeries. Post-surgery actions were also done on 22 May 2016 (Post-surgery I) and 28 May 2016 (Post-surgery II).
The surgeries were performed by 23 ophthalmologists from 5 provinces: North Sumatera, Riau, West Sumatera, South Sulawesi, and Papua. Over 100 employees of the Directorate General of Taxes and ERHA volunteered to manage the event.
With this act, we hope to lessen the number of people who suffer from cataract in Indonesia, thus also contributing to help increase the welfare of the patients who received the free surgery.
