VRSA treats eyes in Cuba

VILA REAL de Santo António Câmara is sending local patients to Cuba for ophthalmological surgeries.

Older patients and those who cannot afford to attend private hospitals can apply for this new programme.

It comes as a result of a twin cities agreement with the Cuban village of Playa. Patients will wait only for 15 days for eye surgery in Cuba and the district plans to send a total of 50 patients by the end of 2007.
