Doctor Nathan Onyachi, the Director Masaka Referral Hospital confirms that their eye Department has been operating without specialized equipment.

Masaka Regional Referral Hospital has received new ophthalmology equipment worth US$ 40,000, thanks to Rotary Clubs in India. The equipment includes a modern microscope and supportive diagnosis and treatment devices that are meant to support specialized eye treatment. 
 
Speaking at the handover of the equipment, Frank Ssekalegga, the President of the Rotary Club of Masaka noted that the decision to make the donation was arrived at after identifying a huge vacuum in eye treatment at the hospital.

A team of medical doctors conducted a Medical Mission at Masaka Regional Referral hospital early this month in collaboration with Rotary International, which attracted hundreds of people.
 
Ssekalegga explains that it is upon this background that their Indian counterparts identified the challenges at the facility and considered offering the required equipment.

He welcomed the donation, saying it will improve their efficiency in service delivery. Onyachi, however, says they lack an eye specialist who can operate the new equipment.

Dr. Stuart Musisi, the Masaka District Health Officer, say the new equipment will boost their bargaining power for more specialized human resource and medical supplies from government. He observes that there was knowledge transfer the 12 days the Indians specialists were at the hospital.
