The Polish volunteers left on Thursday. They will operate on people living close to a mission run by Polish Catholic nuns.

Their trip was organised by the Redemptoris Missio aid foundation.

Its president, Justyna Janiec-Palczewska, said the Poles would spend two weeks in the African country and aimed to carry out a dozen or so operations a day.

The cost of the lenses and drugs needed to perform the operation is PLN 500 (EUR 115, USD 127) per person. The benefits of the procedure to those who can’t see could be invaluable.

A collection to raise funds is under way at www.pomagam.pl/oczyafryki
