What the money buys

Funds primarily buy surgical disposables, such as blades,  pharmaceuticals and lens implants. They also cover utilities and food for patients. SAI frequently obtains quality equipment as donations.

Donations buy consumables. See Again International donates high technology equipment, including microscopes and lasers sourced from generous eye surgeons, mainly in Australia.
