More on Lebanese Mobile Clinics!
We got great feedback regarding the Travel & Smile Lebanon – Mobile Dental Clinics, discussed in our previous post. We got feedback that there are other mobile clinics in Lebanon, so we thought it’s always good to share what’s going on. We have a guest writer today who will be talking all about it…
More on mobile clinics. The LIONS Club Organization has provided and equipped so far 3 types of mobile clinics:
The mobile clinic for hearing and speech was launched in 2010. This clinic can reach villages all over the country through agreements with the municipalities or local health centers. It provides new equipments to test for hearing and speech especially for kids and newborns.
The first mobile clinic for early detection of breast cancer was launched in 2006 and the second in 2010. The clinics divided into three separate rooms and equipped with a mammography and ultrasound machines as well as printing devices. It is used both for exams but for awareness campaigns as well.
The mobile clinic for sight called: Knights of sight was launched in 2012. It includes a chart projector, auto-kerato/refractometer, trial lenses and universal trial frames, auto-lens meter and other devices needed for examination. Aside from the free exams this clinic provides, it also presents glasses for those in need and it is also used to perform free eye surgeries if needed.
To be able to receive these free services the municipalities or local health centers of needed villages and towns can get in contact with the LIONS organization governorate in Baabda on these numbers: +961 5 951417 or +961 5 455352. And if you need more information or what LIONS do, you can also visit the district website on www.lions351.org.
